In this wordless adaptation of one of Aesop's most beloved fables by an award winning artist, an unlikely pair learns that no act of kindness is ever wasted. With vivid depictions of the landscape of the African Serengeti and expressively drawn characters, Pinkney makes this a truly special retelling. 

If you would like to add the Lion and the Mouse finger puppets shown in the photographs, go here to the puppet collection. 

If you would prefer a softcover rather than a hardcover book, go here to the version of this fable by Bernadette Watts.
