Amos the mouse relates his overlooked partnership with Ben Franklin. After discovering how each can benefit from the other, Ben convinces Amos to put their partnership in writing. After all, “the pen is mightier than the sword.” As a result, Amos becomes instrumental in Ben’s many inventions and discoveries. But when Ben makes Amos a “guinea mouse” during his electricity experiments, Amos revolts. Soon after, Ben and the other colonists are also revolting against British rule. With the tables turned, Amos reminds Ben that “the pen is mightier than the sword,” and inspires him to help write the Declaration of Independence.

Based on the classic book by Robert Lawson.
