'Queen Elisa, the ruler of the Tooth Mice, was a great reader.'
Your majesty, what can we give Sandrine for her first milk tooth?
What? Oh, er, yes.
Why not give her a book like this?
She'll enjoy it. It's a very good story.
It reminds me of my childhood. I loved it when I was a child.
(Can you imagine what she was like as a child?)
If you've finished, get along with you.
'Marla the buzzard was expecting chicks, and chicks have to be fed.'
They're going to hatch. I must find them something to eat.
They'll be starving. Poor little darlings. I'll be back in two ticks.
'Sometimes I think I'm nothing but a taxi service for the Tooth Mice.'
Am I dreaming? Or did I see two mice on the back of that bird?
Hey! Stop that!
-Help! I'm going to fall!
-What's going on?! Stop that kerfuffle!
What are you doing?! I can't see!
Arthur! Speak to me! Say something!
'Marla was hatching a plan to eat Gisele.'
Help! Help me!
It's no good. No-one can hear you. You'll disturb my little darlings.
Is this a cookbook?
Cookbook? ..Certainly not.
What a pity. I was hoping to find a nice recipe for mouse.
My little darlings will just have to eat you raw.
As soon as they're hatched.
Perhaps you'd be kind enough to read to me whilst you're waiting.
Can't you read?
Afraid not. I've always regretted it. It gets so boring on your own.
Untie me, then.
"Once upon a time, in the middle of a forest,
"there was a magnificent tree..."
-I just hope we get there in time!
-Look! There's the nest!
"..They all lived happily ever after."
WINGS BEAT Martin!
Stop! Don't you dare!
Stop! Come back!
Come on! Let's get out of here!
There you are at last, my little darlings!
'We finally got to Sandrine's house and delivered the book.'
And now, my little darlings, I'm going to tell you a story.
-Once upon a time...
-'What a life-saver it had been.'
