The king has returned! The king has returned!
Word is spreading through the animal kingdom that their ruler has returned from far away.
The king's special messenger asks each animal species to create a welcome-home gift for their beloved leader. Leo the elephant and Ruza the mountain cat are both confident that their amazing gifts will impress the king and show how much they care. They don't believe that other groups, like the little field mice, could put together anything as magnificent.
You should never underestimate the small and the meek. Leah, a special field mouse with an incredible vision, decides that she also wants to make a wonderful gift for the king. With the help of her wise parents and animal friends, Leah begins collecting a beautiful bouquet to give to the king.
However, disaster strikes before it is completed. Leah is heartbroken! What gift can she give the king now? As the other mice scramble to cheer Leah up and come up with a new gift, this one small mouse will learn that the most precious gifts aren't the biggest or most beautiful. They are the ones that come from the heart.
