Product description

A beautiful wordless version of one of Aesop’s famous fables: so lovely that it won the Caldecott Medal. Out in the jungle, a mouse disturbs a lion. Uh-oh! But the lion lets the mouse go. Later on, the lion is caught in a poacher’s trap. Who will help him? Here comes the mouse – brave and small… With its lovely message about mercy, and that nobody is too small to help out, this is a truly timeless book that every little person will love.

  • A Caldecott Medal winner by a brilliant illustrator
  • Jerry Pinkney has won Caldecott Honors five times
  • A beautifully drawn story of mercy and helping others
  • Combines irresistible visual detail with no words at all

“This exquisite book is inspired by Kenya’s Serengeti, and from its end pieces, teeming with animals, to its close-ups of life as seen by mice and insects, it is a golden gift.” The Times

“Wordless, but carefully sequenced pictures convey Aesop’s fable beautifully… Readers will be enchanted by the magnificent golden palette.” Carousel
