2010 Caldecott Medal Winner! In this nearly wordless picture book, acclaimed artist Jerry Pinkney creates a brilliant, lush retelling of this timeless Aesop’s fable. Set in the African Serengeti, the story begins as a mouse escapes an owl, only to find she has disturbed a mighty lion. Taking pity on the small mouse, the lion sets her free, only to soon find himself ensnared in a poacher's net. Now, seeing her chance to repay the great lion's mercy, the mouse gnaws through the ropes and sets him free, bringing this moving story about courage and gratitude to a satisfying conclusion. Pinkney's vibrant, evocative watercolors capture each scene in vivid detail, revealing the grandeur of the jungle, the power of the lion, and the boldness of the mouse. You and your young readers and listeners will pore over these pages again and again, discovering new details and delights, as you share in this classic fable's inspiring message that we all need each other and that even the mightiest among us may be helped by the smallest. Ages 3-7. 36pp.
