Lion and Mouse by Catalina Echeverri

Lion and Mouse are friends - but as everyone knows, Lion is bigger, stronger and more handsome! Not even Lion is perfect though, and when he comes face-to-face with his biggest fear, he realizes he needs his small friend more than he thought.

Fun to read, and it also reinforces a positive message about sharing differences and looking beneath the surface to find true worth. * Teach Nursery * This is Echeverri's first book and her illustrative style is dynamic and stylised with line drawings, strong colours and a range of fonts to enhance the story. Mouse, erasing the dark to rescue Lion, is particularly well done. It would be interesting to see what small children being read to make of Mouse's thoughts - the book could be a useful tool for talking about using words in a considerate way. -- Annalise Taylor * Carousel *
