“The Big Red Wall had always been there. It stretched as far as the eye could see.” Little Mouse, Scaredy Cat, Old Bear, Laughing Fox, and Lion Who Had Lost His Roar live in a grey village surrounded by a large red wall. The thought of what is beyond the wall fills cat, bear and lion with fear. Mouse filled with curiosity and courage, steps beyond the wall, finding a world of beauty and freedom. 

After meeting a bluebird the mouse asks why its friends won’t leave the safety of their home. The bird answers, “They were looking with fear… YOU are looking with wonder. You were brave enough to find out the truth for yourself.” Mouse returns to her friends and they listen as she describes the wonders beyond the wall. “One by one they walked through the wall. Only Lion stayed behind… until the day he too was ready to join Little Mouse and her friends in the land beyond the wall.”
