The illustrations in this book are stunning. This is a classic fable that is always fun to read. Younger elementary students would love it.

Summary: A classic Aesop fable is retold. Mouse convinces Lion not to eat him. Mouse later returns the favor.
Review: The illustrations in this book look touchable in their detail and accompany the story well. This story tells of the importance of helping each other out.

A young mouse stumbles over a lion one day, and begs the lion not to eat him. After convincing the lion that he may need the mouse's help one day, the lion lets the mouse go. Sure enough, the day comes when the lion needs the mouse to set him free.

While I love Jerry Pinkney's version, this one, which has the story in words, is my favorite for reading-aloud. ( )

Exquisitely detailed illustrations; my favorite is the lion dangling the mouse above his jaws, with the blue shadow mice. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545101476, Hardcover)

From the illustrator of the classic edition of Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs

On a ridge above the Kalihari,
Lion naps, until Mouse bumbles into him,
willy-nilly, startling him awake.
After a show of teeth, Lion is softened
by Mouse's pledge of loyalty
and sets him free.

When a cold moon brings a humbling lesson,
Lion comes to recognize
Mouse's keen skill, and deeper kindness.

Mouse and Lion, Aesop's fabled duo,
renew their ancient bond
in this warm retelling by Rand Burkert,
illuminated by the authentic natural detail
of Nancy Ekholm Burkert's art.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:39:02 -0400)

Presents an adaptation of Aesop's classic tale about an unlikely friendship between a mouse and a lion in which an act of mercy proves to be a lifesaving gesture.
