to be happy, sets off to see the world
and meets up with two companions, a dog
and an elephant. After travelling through several
magic lands and crossing the starry ocean,
they come across the Cyclops Quickeye and,
in their naïveté... Elephant and dog end up in the
monster's belly, but, luckily the curious little mouse
manages to save his friends.
They all learn at the end of the story: some to be
more wary, others not to use violence. However,
it does not offer a moral as is customary
but motivates reflection arouses curiosity
and questions in young readers.
