The Mouse and The Blue Jay: A modern day spin on the classic Aesop’s fables
by A.B. Lane
There’s a volcano erupting in the forest, but is Blue Jay the only one around who notices? In his efforts to warn the others of the danger, he encounters Mouse, who denies that the eruption even exists at all. Over the course of their argument, others gather, and sides form: those who believe the eruption exists and those who don’t. Mirroring the morality tales of Aesop’s fables, The Mouse and The Blue Jay explores the idea that sometimes it’s okay to admit when you’re wrong, especially when what you’re denying is such a clear and present danger.
