Anthony is different, a mouse that isn’t afraid of cats. He lives in the Black Creek State forest in New York with his mom and dad. But Anthony is not happy. He doesn’t have any friends. And because his father fears he will get attacked by a cat, Anthony is not allowed to explore the forest alone. How will Anthony be able to make friends? Will he venture alone into the forest, against his father’s wishes? Anthony’s fearlessness could get him into trouble or… it could help him find friends! Our differences set us apart from others, but sometimes they bring us together.
