Description


Follow Stanley the mouse, a banjo-playing busker from London, on his very first trip around the world. Stanley joins Mrs. Crombie on her majestic airship, a beautiful hot air balloon that offers travelers unparalleled views. Together they visit fifteen far-flung locations, including Paris, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Beijing, Namibia's Etosha National Park, Moscow, Tokyo, Rome, Delhi, Germany's Black Forest, Mexico City, Amsterdam, Seoul, and Barcelona, before returning home--although not without plenty of excitement

Stanley almost doesn't make it past his first destination thanks to overindulging on delicious cheeses in Paris; he loses his hat in a breeze above the Great Wall of China; in Moscow, Stanley, and Mrs. Crombie discover they have a secret stowaway in the form of a fat black-and-white cat; and quite unintentionally, Stanley causes a stampede of elephants in Delhi. These and many more adventures await in this global addition to the Mice in the City series, which celebrates the culture of each destination through foods, festivals, and dress. The illustrations teem with surprises and the book invites children to play "hide-and-squeak," searching each page for familiar characters.
