The Vole Who Would be King by Thomas Ginette
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A tiny vole stood on royal rock and squeaked as loudly as he could:'Today, I will be King.'Rabbit, Hedgehog and Fox all thought he was being very silly indeed - and sure enough when the real king of the forest comes, Vole was much too scared to insist. Well, the King was the biggest, blackest, fiercest looking bear you ever saw - and unfortunately he couldn't see very well because he'd lost his glasses. In a generous mood, King Bear put Vole on his head (inside the crown), and takes him for a ride. The poor little vole was flung about within the crown, and had to cling on very tightly. But he was able to warn the bear when he was about to tread on Fox, and then on Hedgehog, and finally on Rabbit. When they returned to the royal rock, all the animals were there to cheer their hero, Vole. And even though Vole wasn't the King of the Forest, he thought that being a real hero was every bit as good.
