  • Something that is incredible is amazing, unbelievable, or not likely to happen.
  • This story places ordinary characters in a traditional monster-movie plot.
  • The dreadful Dogzilla destroys the streets of Mousopolis, ruining the city’s cook-off. Brave mice attack, but Dogzilla’s terrible doggy breath defeats them. Finally, the mice come up with a better plan-BATH TIME! Dogzilla flees, and Mousoplois is saved, at least until next year.
