Jerry Pinkney's 'The Lion and the Mouse' - Book Review and Giveaway (BTSC Bonus)

Remember the well loved Aesop's fable 'the Lion and the Mouse'? This fable has been told to generation after generation and nothing warms the heart more than when we read about how an act of kindness is repaid when the little mouse helps rescue the lion when he is trapped in a net. (This was in repayment of the lion's kind gesture of saving the mouse's life when caught as prey in his very own hands....err...paws.)

This has been a favorite story to many a child including Jerry Pinkney, the famed children's books illustrator. It is on this fable that his book ' The Lion and the Mouse' is retold.....only this time, the fable is told minus the words.

Jerry Pinkney has been illustrating children's books for over 40 years. His art has been appreciated the world over and he has been the recipient of more than just a few awards. (Read the list to believe it!) Jerry has beautifully brought to life ' The Lion and the Mouse' story only through classic illustrations.

Bunny girl and I enjoyed going through this book and what I loved the most was hearing Bunny girl's take on each page, her own little version of this well known fable...and you know what, her version was so close to the actual! Jerry Pinkney truly accomplished what he set out to do with this book, allowing even a 3 and a half year old to relive the fable just by looking at his art.

'The Lion and the Mouse' is a Little, Brown and Company publication (Hachette Book Group) and can be bought online or at your local bookstore. The suggested retail price is 16.99$.


Win it:

Three readers will a
copy of 'The Lion and the Mouse', by Jerry Pinkney.

I'd love to win this book. I love to hear the stories children make from pictures only books. They either tell the original version they heard from the person who read the story to them or later at another "reading" they can change the details to tell their own newer version. Some books have such beautiful illustrations that you don't even miss having any or very little text. Thanks!

this sounds like an amazing book going by the art work on your report and pretty unique . I am sure Bunny Girl would have enjoyed it thoroughly and you listening to her as I know how creative and intelligent she is ...she loved her 'picture ' story books even when she was a baby few months 'young'. Happy Reading !
