The Lion and the Mouse

by Kathleen Olmstead, Scott Wakefield
Could a tiny mouse actually help the king of the jungle? Thats what a trapped mouse promises to do if his lion captor sets him free. The lion laughs–and lets him go. But when hunters trap the scared and desperate lion, the mouse proves that even the smallest creatures can do great deeds.
