About the Book

This charming novel leads us to understand the eternal struggle for power. Who deserves it? Is it the strongest amongst us or the most fair? Its events and dialogues take place in the world of jungle animals when standards are turned upside down. Instead of the lion king, the animals find themselves under the rule of the mouse, in a clear reference to the weak humans who ascend to power in their countries through military coups and conspiracies, and who are not worthy of rule and too incompetent to inact justice. It is a wonderful novel, where the author has written the characters so lively and vividly it is as though they were animated in a movie. Many of those who have read it have considered it the third sequel to the "The Lion King" series, and in many ways it is indeed so.
