“Retold by renowned illustrator Jerry Pinkney, the New York Times best-selling and Caldecott Award-winning parable of generosity and compassion.
An unexpected pair learns that no act of kindness is ever wasted in the wordless version of one of Aesop’s most well-known stories by award-winning artist Jerry Pinkney. The mouse eventually comes to the lion’s rescue by releasing him from a poacher’s trap after the savage lion spares the terrified mouse he had intended to devour. Pinkney gives this retelling a genuinely unique touch with vivid renderings of the Serengeti region in Africa and expressively drawn figures. His breathtaking images speak for themselves.
Don’t overlook these further timeless retellings by Pinkney:
Mermaid the Little
Ants and the Grasshopper
The Hare and the Tortoise
Book of Three Billy Goats
Red Riding Hood, Little
Little Star, Twinkle, Twinkle”
