Read full description of the books The Lion & the Mouse:
“The Lion and the Mouse” is a Caldecott Medal award winning book by the wonderful Jerry Pinkney that is about how a bold lion realizes that the smallest creature can be a big help when he is trapped in a predicament that he cannot get out of. “The Lion and the Mouse” is a brilliant retelling of the classic Aesop fable that children will read over and over again.
Jerry Pinkney’s illustrations alone retell the story of a popular Aesop fable, since there are no words in this book to tell the readers the story. Jerry Pinkney’s illustrations are beautiful and realistic looking as the reader can tell that the setting of the book is set in Africa since there are dozens of wild animals around and drawings of high yellowish grass. The image that stood out the most was the image of the lion itself as it looks extremely realistic and beautiful, especially during the scenes where the lion was holding the small mouse in its paws and has an angry look on its face.
“The Lion and the Mouse” is definitely one of the best wordless picture books since David Wiesner’s “Tuesday” and it will definitely attract children of all ages for its beautiful illustrations and uplifting story. I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since toddlers would not have problems reading this book since there are no words to tell the story.
