Animals who make the wrong noises actually have other animals inside them.

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.

Maggie Goes on a Diet

Quick review.

Review: 

Not very well written, but surprisingly not that bad of a story. There are overweight 14 year old girls, and perhaps their lives would improve if they lost weight.

Overweight 14-year-olds need to diet.

Quick review.

Review: 

Strange, nearly wordless version of the fable. You kind of have to know the fable already to understand what's going on.
