Horatio is a mouse, small in stature but big in spirit. When asked to a party, Horatio is nervous and reluctant, but with a little prompting he sets off to play with his new friends. While all goes well at the start, when Horatio’s friends tease and bully a bird, Horatio has to decide - do what his friends want, or to take a stand. A beautiful story by the talented pair - Karen Foxlee and Evie Barrow about finding the strength to stand tall and choosing to stand up to for what is right.
