Vibrant illustrations bring to life this wordless adaptation of this classic Aesop fable about a merciful lion who spared a mouse's life and the unexpected reward he received for his good deed from the tiny hero.
Artist Jerry Pinkney's stunning, incredible illustrations create a peerless adaptation of Aesop's fable about the lion and the mouse. When the Lion kindly spares little Mouse's life, it frees up the wee rodent to help out the big beast later on. With a few select sounds thrown in for wonderful reading aloud. THE LION THE MOUSE won the 2010 Caldecott Medal as the best illustrated book for children, and was selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
