Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“From one majestic end page to the other, in an almost wordless, stunning presentation, this much-loved Aesop's Fable comes to life with clarity of the heart and emotion for both animals' trials and entwined kindnesses. Amazing!”
-- Ellen Mager, Booktenders Children's, Doylestown, PA


Description

In award-winning artist Jerry Pinkney's wordless adaptation of one of Aesop's most beloved fables, an unlikely pair learn that no act of kindness is ever wasted. After a ferocious lion spares a cowering mouse that he'd planned to eat, the mouse later comes to his rescue, freeing him from a poacher's trap. With vivid depictions of the landscape of the African Serengeti and expressively-drawn characters, Pinkney makes this a truly special retelling, and his stunning pictures speak volumes.
