Description

A stunning, wordless version of one of Aesop's best-loved fables, from one of America's most acclaimed artists.

In this Caldecott Medal-winning, wordless picture book, one of America's most acclaimed artists retells one of Aesop's best-loved fables. The fable is a favourite and familiar one: a mouse inadvertently disturbs a lion, who lets the mouse go ... and is later himself freed by the mouse from a poacher's trap. With art inspired by the Kenyan Serengeti, Jerry Pinkney's jaw-droppingly gorgeous interpretation is irresistible, its wealth of visual detail offering huge scope for the pages to be turned and the story retold over and over again.

Review quote

Wordless, but carefully sequenced pictures convey Aesop's fable beautifully . . . Readers will be enchanted by the magnificent golden palette and varying sizes of illustration, experiencing anew the traditional tale. * Carousel * This exquisite book is inspired by Kenya's Serengeti, and from its end pieces, teeming with animals, to its close-ups of life as seen by mice and insects, it is a golden gift. * The Times *
