Do you have a favorite fable or fairy tale? Can it be told differently, from a different character’s perspective or with an emphasis on a new part of the old moral?
Except for animal sounds painted into the artwork, The Lion and The Mouse by Jerry Pinkney is told soley through its beautiful artwork. It tells the story powerfully, and I “read” the story as if for the first time. Love that!
