A mouse called Mance gets trapped in a big cheese wheel. He is scared at first: he wants to get out and be with his brother Skinny. However, he soon realises that he is surrounded by yummy cheese, and little by little, he gets so overwhelmed by it that he forgets all about his brother. It is like winning the lottery. Nothing lasts forever, though: eventually he eats too much cheese and breaks through the crust. He sees that his brother Skinny is threatened by Cat, and he manages to save him. Now that he is no longer surrounded by cheese, Mance is overjoyed to reunite with his brother.
