The Mice and the Weasels and Other Fables
In "The Lion and Mouse," a lion catches a mouse that begs to be set free, offering a favor in the future. The lion doesn't think the mouse could ever help him--until the little mouse is the one to free him from a net! This and 14 other fables will introduce readers to the lessons of Aesop, including "The Eagle and the Beetle," another tale telling about the greatness of the small. Lovely, full-color illustrations add charm and fun to these fables, enhancing the reading experience and readers' enjoyment.
