Author: Jerry Pinkney
Illustrator: Jerry Pinkney
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
Summary:A (mostly) wordless retelling of the classic fable, in which a lion permits his small prey to go free only to have the mouse become his unlikely rescuer in the end.
Review:Pinkney adds to the original tale with a whole family of babies who hear the amazing story from the hero himself. While the illustrations are magnificent, I missed some of the elements of the original tale that were too difficult to portray wordlessly.
