Long ago in China, there lived a family of proud, boastful rats who commanded their poor cousins and insisted that their daughter marry a cat--their most powerful enemy and influential foe. The sad outcome of their arrogance and the resulting good fortune of their poor cousins are the heart of this wise old story. Full-color illustrations.
