This is a sympathetic and engaging eight-page pamphlet with stiff covers. Biro's great work with facial expressions starts here with the title-page. This lion is not happy with this mouse! Pique shifts to wonder to smiling and musing--and then to desperation. All this development leads up to the fine two-page spread on which the lion is astounded by the mouse's ability to bite through his net. As of this point I have found nine of what was twelve books in the series but now has become eighteen. Other books in the series had been published in 1983 and 1986. Apparently six more were added to the series in 1988.
