“Some must learn by seeing for themselves.”
In this Turkish folk tale, Little Mouse suffers from a case of pride. He is told by his grandfather that the master of the forest, Elephant, is the strongest animal around. Little Mouse goes off to meet many different animals, each telling him that Elephant is the Master. You’ll have to read on to discover what happens when Little Mouse finally meets up with Elephant.
I thought this was a very clever little story. The illustrations by John Segal were amusing, easy to follow, and very clever. This book is great for little readers because the illustrations do a great job telling the story, too. The lesson in this story is that is important to learn at any age. I would recommend this book for group reads or just solo for all ages.
