After Dinner Drinks at Mousey Hall

After a pleasant dinner with Miss Mousey, Froggy and Mr. Rat enjoy drinks and pleasant conversation. Froggy appears to be doing a little courting too. Don't you love the wonderful fireplace wall? Randolph Caldecott's illustrations always gave the animals small mansions with fine antiques and he dressed them in the finery of the day.

Mr. Froggy went a courting.... It was one of favorite songs in kindergarten. The illustration is wonderful.

Beautiful illustration. The big peacock feather is looking down over the scene!
