This is the touching and inspiring story of a cattle egret and the fighting bull who saves his life. Years later, Little Egret is able to return the favor. The egret warns the bull that he will wind up in the butcher shop if he goes into the bullring, so when he does fight, the bird devises a plan to save him. Little Egret is a book about friendship and loyalty.
