In this wordless retelling of an Aesop fable, an adventuresome mouse proves that even small creatures are capable of great deeds when he rescues the King of the Jungle.
Although the lion appears somewhat possessed in a few of the illustrations, the overall quality is superb: depth, color, balance, and texture masterfully create a lush and inviting work of art. This is a great choice to share with a child in your life, as it invites conversations about the illustrations and the story they tell, the motives of the title characters, poaching, and of course the lessons that can be learned.
