Tiny Rabbit wants to be big! He wishes that he will grow to have "legs as tall as trees" and a tail as big as a mountain. He wishes and wishes to be big! But tiny rabbit only grows a little bit. Then tiny rabbit wishes to be strong as a gorilla. But he is still just a tiny rabbit. Tiny rabbit doesn't get very much bigger, stronger or taller, but his ears grow a lot. They let him hear all sorts of sounds and other animals. He learns to appreciate the benefits of being small, like being able to hide from lions!
