In this wordless adaptation of one of Aesop’s most beloved fables, an unlikely pair learn 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. Combined with a rich soundtrack featuring traditional African vocal music and natural sound effects, Pinkney's stunning pictures speak volumes.

Reviews:
"Evocative sound effects and soaring South African-inspired music enhance this...wordless picture book...The haunting tune that plays over images of the mouse gnawing on the rope is beautifully performed by a South African vocal group, and triumphant music signaling the lion's freedom is most uplifting..." - Booklist
"Featuring beautiful drawings, haunting sounds of the African Serengeti, and original music by Sazi Dlamini, The Lion and the Mouse is extraordinarily beautiful and enthusiastically recommended." - Midwest Book Review
"...filled with action, suspense and song...featuring the animal soudns of the Serengeti and riveting Zulu music...offers several messages for youngsters." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
"...featuring an African-style percussive soundtrack...a fine retelling with a winning theme of compassion." - ***, Video Librarian
