The Lion and the Mouse
by Jerry Pinkney


All the World

illustrated by Marla Frazee
written by Liz Garton Scanlon

Is it possible to tell your favorite fable without words? Author/Illustrator Jerry Pinkney has done it, beautifully set in the plains and among the creatures of the African Serengeti. His paintings focus attention on a gorgeous lion that becomes caught in a hunter's net and a tiny mouse whose courage counters his fear to free the huge lion.

Pinkney introduces the families of the lion and the mouse as they listen to their parents' spellbinding story. The character-building fable is enlightening beyond words!
