Description

Illus. in full color. "Lionni's inquisitive, clever mice prove once more the
value of the fable as a storytelling device, especially when it is simply told
and beautifully illustrated. Confined to a meadow behind a high wall, Tillie
longs to discover the unknown world beyond the wall. It takes all of Tillie's
determination to find a way to the other side. A superior picture book, this
should be a perennial favorite for primary grade story hours."--(starred)
"School Library Journal.

About Leo Lionni

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators' Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as "a master of the simple fable" by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.
