The Mouse Who Saved Egypt

By Karim Alrawi, illustrated by Bee Willey

See how a small kindness can be repaid a thousand times over in this retelling of an ancient Middle Eastern folk tale. Ages 4-7 years.

Award-winning writer and playwright, Karim Alrawi, brings a new rendition of Aesop's fable about the lion and the mouse. One day in the deserts of ancient Egypt a young prince rescues a tiny mouse trapped in thorns. The mouse promises to repay the act of kindness, but the young man is skeptical. Fortune favors the prince and he becomes pharaoh. When Egypt is threatened by a powerful enemy, he faces great danger. Just when he thinks that there is nothing to be done, the mouse he once helped returns to save the kingdom in a most unexpected way.

With stunning and distinctive illustrations by Bee Willey, this teaching tale of kindness and it s rewards . . . shows how the smallest of creatures can also be the most heroic.
