The Lion & the Mouse
Illustrated and written by Jerry Pinkney, published by Little, Brown and Company Books for Young Readers
The screech of an owl, the squeak of a mouse and the roar of a lion transport readers to the Serengeti plains for this virtually wordless retelling of Aesop's classic fable. In glowing colors, Pinkney's textured watercolor illustrations masterfully portray the relationship between two unlikely friends.
