The Discontented Gopher by L. Frank Baum
When Zikky the Gopher wins the golden ball, he faces a tough decision - riches or happiness? Zikky follows his choice and enjoys his new life for a short while, but soon he finds himself in trouble. Did the little gopher make the wisest decision, or will it be the end of him? L. Frank Baum's Discontented Gopher is a true American fairy tale. Danger lurks around every corner, and wisdom is hard-earned in this classic fable.
