Bitsie the mouse has a difficult time finding food for her family, so she decides to move by Leo the lion’s den. Bitsie gets caught while getting too curious. When Leo discovers her, Bitsie nearly becomes the lion’s dinner. She offers to help Leo someday if he will let her live, an idea he finds so funny that he sets her free.
The tables are turned when Leo gets caught in a hunter’s trap. Bitsie keeps her word and comes to the rescue. Although Leo can’t believe tiny Bitsie can help him, she tries her best. Just as the hunters are about to capture Leo, Bitsie makes one last bite, and Leo bursts forth from his trap. This retelling of Aesop’s classic fable illustrates that great things often come in small packages.
