What a creative concept! The twin sister of the mouse that ran over the lion ends up gnawing through the lion's net -- and so redeems herself in the eyes of her more athletic sister. The original fable is presented in one page, and then Bitsy narrates that that is not how the story really went. Bitsy's sister Catnip was the athletic sister, and Bitsy was invisible. Catnip did the parts of the first phase of the story but was cowardly when it came to the second phase. That's where Bitsy stepped in. Since then Catnip is kinder to Bitsy. Who would have thought to turn this fable into a story about sibling rivalry?! Well illustrated. Ideal, of course, for brothers and sisters who have to deal with sibling rivalry!
