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
