The Lion and the Mouse

The Lion and the Mouse - Jerry Pinkney

Illustrated by Jerry Pinkney

 

Pinkney's wordless version of Aaesop's falbe The lion and the mouse is incredibly beautiful!

This fable is well known by all of us. The lion decides to spare the mouse's life after she perturbed him when he was napping. This favor will be returned when the lion is caught in a trap and the mouse frees him.

It's a beautiful story where the tiny mouse and the king of the animals show to be equally vulnerable when  in danger, and equally great in kindness.

 

The illustrations are magnificent and impressive. The message is definitively well expressed through the pages.

I'm really interested in take a look at other Pinkney's works.
