If I Ran the Zoo

Quick review.

Review: 

Surprisingly, slightly racist. Interesting enough to write a longer review. Having princes carry your stuff is some sort of statement.

Zoos are great, but they could be much better. Or, foreigners should live in zoos.

The Story of Jumping Mouse: A Native American Legend

Quick review.

Review: 

Strange. Native American legend. A mouse wants to visit the far-off land, and gets jumping legs from a magic frog. He gives his eyesight to a blind buffalo and his sense of smell to a wolf who has lost his sense of smell, then the magic frog rewards him by turning him into an eagle.

Quick review.

Review: 

Strange version of the blind men and the elephant but mice instead of men. Nice that the one who figures it out is also a blind mouse and not some sighted passerby.

Look at the big picture.

Quick review.

Review: 

Starts out like the ant and the grasshopper, where a family of field mice are all getting ready for winter except one who seems like a slacker but it turns out he is a POET. Kind of a hipster vibe despite its age.
