The Caldecott Award-winning fable of compassion and kindness retold by acclaimed artist Jerry Pinkney.

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.

    This book is a tale I have heard befor.It is one of my favorite tales in the world!I like it even though it has no words in it. This book has won a Caldecott meddle.This book is about a lion and a mouse who make a deal for the lion not to eat the mouse and the mouse to do something for the lion in return . The illustrations tell the story very well and if you like books with no words this is a good book for you and I give thumbs up.👍🏻
