Aesop's tales are brilliantly told in a simple, easy-to-read style that engages young readers. Each story explores one of life's stories providing the morals by which to live. Strikingly illustrated, these stories are entertaining for emergent readers.
This delightful tale tells of a mouse who disturbs the lion and makes him angry. The mouse offers to be his friend in return for letting him go. When the lion is snared by a hunter the mouse comes to free him by nibbling through the net. The moral is that the small can help the mighty.
