A wonderful re-telling of the classic Aesop Fable- Lion & the Mouse story. I enjoyed this beautifully illustrated story, as Rand pays tribute to the courageous, little mouse. This story proves that no matter how big or little you are, you can do anything you set your mind to as long as you're brave enough to try.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
