When the noble French mouse Anatole learns that humans view mice as the villains of France, he embarks on a musical adventure to save a cheese factory, restore his family's honor, conquer a cat, and truly become a Mouse Magnifique! Based on the Caldecott medal winning books, Anatole is the story of France’s bravest and most honorable mouse.  A wonderful mix of genuine heart and absolute hilarity, Anatole promises to delight every member of the family.
