An orange and blue mouse holds a bowl and wears a brown belt standing against a backdrop of black the floor brown beneath it. In white text it says A Different King of Hero and Other Stories and in dark font it says Janice Clark.

A collection of fantasy stories and poems celebrating the non-human, the other:
…a reluctant hero finds an unexpected ally in a chocolate-loving giant rodent
…a slug detective and wannabe mage solves his case
…a refugee from not-earth seeks the way home
…a mortal child is enticed to visit fairyland
…a shape-shifting space traveler, masquerading as a teddy bear, enlists the aid of a human child
…a half-heard noise in the night sparks anxiety
…a junior demon is recruited for a covert operation
plus a sampler featuring an ominous creature hiding in a cigar box
