This book is a wonderful adaptation of The Boat Contest and Aesop's fable:The Lion and the Mouse. In the book we have Lambchop and Charlie Horse who want to build a model boat for a Boat building contest. Lambchop and Charlie Horse are ridiculed by the big kids for being too young to enter the contest. Charlie Horse then turns on Lambchop and says that he will build the best boat, and he chooses to build a very complicated boat, while Lambchop decides to make a very simple rowboat. Charlie Horse proceeds to tease Lambchop about her boat saying it is small just like her and she could never win. When the day of the contest arrived, Charlie Horse still hasn't finished his boat and Lambchop offers to help him. He refuses because he believes she is to small to help him win. Lambchop begins to cry and goes to Sherri for comfort. Sherri then begins to tell Lambchop the story of The Lion and the Mouse. The day of the race, a little girl had the same model boat as Charlie Horse, and he got upset because he didn't see why the judges would pick his as the best boat over hers. Lambchop then has the idea to take his shoelace and attach her little boat to the back to make it a tugboat!! Charlie Horse ended up winning the contest because he let Lambchop help him! Great story !! I would recommend it to anyone! ( )
