Four traditional Lao folk tales
Big Brother Mouse believes it's important to remember traditional culture and values, as well as being open to new ideas and ways of learning. These four stories have been passed on from parent to child for many generations. 'The Elephant and Sparrows' and 'The Three Friends' teach the importance of working together, while the title story shows what happens to mice who trust a cat too much.
This popular book was one of the first that we published. Now, as we promote reading aloud, we're reprinting it in a larger size.
