As Owl swoops down on an unsuspecting lemming outside her den, he is sure that he has a tasty meal in the little animal he has cornered. But this lemming is not about to be eaten! This smart little rodent will need to appeal to the boastful owl’s sense of pride to get away. Based on an Inuit traditional story, this book is a fun and cheeky tale that is sure to amuse young readers.
