King Snake just loves to talk, and when he captures two mice, Tinkerton and Henry, he's thinking more of an audience than dinner. In an effort to escape from the loquacious serpent, Tinkerton and Henry devise a plan and sew together a surprise for King Snake -fake mice to leave in their place. But King Snake doesn't get angry when he realizes that he's been duped; rather, he's very excited about the two beautiful gifts that Tinkerton and Henry have left for him. A fun tale about two very resourceful mice and a gregarious garter snake.
