"In this charmingly subversive reinterpretation of a classic tale, the Morrisons and Pascal Lemaitre take a hilarious look at bullying. The cocky lion, the self-proclaimed "baddest in the land", believes himself invincible until he gets a thorn stuck in his paw. Only a weak mouse can help him, but then the lion must indulge the mouse's ridiculous price and appetite for power." (from the dust-jacket) ; Color Illustrations;  pages.
