The Lovereading4Kids comment
A prize-winning book of exceptional beauty, this wordless version of Aesop’s classic story of how a lion’s life is transformed by an act of generosity when it saves the life of a mouse is a gem. The wonderful tawny colours of the Lion capture the mighty creature at the height of its power; the very different power of the Mouse is captured in detailed close ups when he and his fellow rodents chew the ropes and set the Lion free. Jerry Pinkney celebrates both creatures and highlights the message of this wonderful story.
The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney
This is a stunning, wordless version of one of Aesop's best-loved fables, from one of America's most acclaimed artists. This Aesop's 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. Jerry Pinkney's jaw-droppingly gorgeous new wordless treatment is irresistible, its wealth of visual detail offering huge scope for the pages to be turned and the story retold over and over again. Spectacular. This title is a winner of the 2010 Caldecott Medal, the most prestigious award for children's book illustration in the United States. It is one of the world's favourite fables, retold exclusively in pictures and more eloquently than ever by a multi-award-winning artist. Words cannot express...
