A lady mouse, who perceives herself as weak, searches for a strong husband. She approaches the sun because of its heat, the cloud because it covers the sun, the wind because it blows the cloud away, and the farmhouse because the wind cannot blow it down. But the farmhouse tells her that he is being slowly destroyed by a creature that is even stronger. It is then that the lady mouse meets this "incredible creature," and as a result, she recognizes her own strength. From the book "The Mouse Bride" by New Zealand author Joy Cowley.
