Once upon a time there was a little mouse born with the power to read. In the back room of a pet store, he read the classic tales of the Arthurian knights over the shoulder of the manager on break. Then one day, he was sold as snake food.
But this mouse had other plans….
Defeating the dragon he becomes the first mouse knight. He then sets out to free his family from certain doom at the hands of uncaring humans. With no place to go, and no way of knowing what awaits him he and the other escapees seek out other rodents… …and find that they are not alone! There exists a vast underground kingdom of mice who hail the little one as their hero. He then makes it his holy quest to find the mythical “kind human,” the one person in the world who loves mice.
With his faithful squire, a guardian rat, and a mouse named “bigfat” he sets out on an impossible journey across the fields of fate. Far beyond the borders of the mouse kingdom they set out to find the kind human-or perish trying. They journey to save their own kind and teach them they are worth more than 99 cent snake food. And maybe, if he is very lucky, the mouse knight will earn his greatest wish - a name! This is his story…one of love, hope, and mighty courage in the heart of a tiny mouse who would not accept his dismal fate.
