Life in the forest is difficult for the small animals. The squirrel, the mouse, and frog always have to be on the look-out for the big creatures, such as the lion, rhinoceros, and crocodile. But one day things magically change . . . the little animals grow bigger and the large animals shrink. But is life really any easier for the squirrel now that he is king of the forest? A beautifully imaginative tale from the 1960s, brought up-to-date while maintaining a wonderful retro feel.
