The Lion and the Mouse

Written and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney

  • 2010 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
  • 2010 Caldecott Medal Winner

In award-winning artist Jerry Pinkney's wordless adaptation of one of Aesop's most beloved fables, an unlikely pair learn that no act of kindness is ever wasted. After a ferocious lion spares a cowering mouse that he'd planned to eat, the mouse later comes to his rescue, freeing him from a poacher's trap. With vivid depictions of the landscape of the African Serengeti and expressively-drawn characters, Pinkney makes this a truly special retelling, and his stunning pictures speak volumes.
