Top of the Shelf: The Lion and the Mouse

lion and mouse The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney Breathtaking images of the two main characters appear on the front and back jacket, stirring the imagination to explore further. Using the African Serengeti as background, Pinkney gives depth to the ancient Aesop fable through expressive bodies and faces rendered in eye-riveting watercolor-and-pencil illustrations.  The few words - animal sounds craftily incorporated into the pictures - allow viewers to immerse themselves in the spectacular art.
