Can I come too?

What animal is bigger than a million mice? The little mouse definitely knows the answer!

When a tiny mouse leaves her cosy nest to look for the biggest creature in the world she doesn’t stay alone for long. Many animals accompany her, even the huge tiger from the zoo is allowed to come along after he has solemnly promised not to eat up anybody of the travelling party.

Polar Bear knows that the biggest creature in the world lives in the ocean. „How does it look like?“, wonders Little Mouse excitedly. Then they see it, a creature as big as an island, bigger than a million mice. The animals have never seen such a wonderful thing before!
