Lion and Mouse Stories is about a lion who plans to eat a mouse.  The mouse has no wish to be eaten and buys time by telling the lion four stories. In "The Tiger, the Brahman, and the Jackal," a tiger is tricked back into a cage by a very clever jackal who pretends to be a very stupid jackal. In "A Better Mousetrap," a very clever mouse outsmarts a builder of mousetraps that, no matter how elaborate, continually fail to trap him. "The Lion's New Tail" is about a vain lion who buys an invisible tail from yet another very clever mouse. The Lion, frustruated by all these clever mice, insists he will appear in the last story. Unfortunately for him, "King of the Jungle" tells the story of a lion who is undone by a chicken foot. And the Mouse -- the very, very clever Mouse -- is saved.
