Meet Horatio

In a very fine house, on a very grand street

Lived the tiniest mouse you could possibly meet

His little green coat was threadbare and patched

If you looked very close, his socks were mismatched.

So, you might not believe that a mousling so weak

Could possible perform an incredible feat,

But this is the tale of HORATIO SQUEAK.

This story is about the power one voice,
no matter how small, can have. It's for anyone
who has ever wished to be stronger, louder,
or bigger and anyone who has bravely spoken
out against bullies or wished they had.
