Lion and Mouse




      Lion and Mouse
Funny, fresh and very modern, this update on the fable of the lion and the mouse is a marvelous tale of a relationship between two unlikely friends.One day, the mouse marches into the lion s den without an invitation Before the lion can eat him for breakfast, the mouse begs for mercy If you let me go, I might be able to return the favor The lion laughs at the idea of such a small, insignificant creature helping him out until the next day when the mouse frees the lion from a hunter s trap.Jairo Buitrago and Rafael Yockteng, one of the great creative teams in picture books, have fun in this simple and never didactic story about how it s possible to get along through negotiation, acceptance and learning to put up with a friend s eccentricities You can be good to one another not because you expect anything in return but just because you are friends.

    Totally bananas but oddly endearing version of the lion and mouse fable It s really wacky how the mouse is on his way to meet his girlfriend and Lion is like no way you re too ugly to have a girlfriend Then there s the question of if they are actually a couple at the end Or at least that s a question I had at the end That said I do like the messaging and how they both figure out that doing favors for friends isn t the same as doing them for the sake of reciprocity My favorite spread is nea Totally bananas but oddly endearing version of the lion and mouse fable It s really wacky how the mouse is on his way to meet his girlfriend and...

    There are very few folk and fairy tales being published and this is a nice version of the Lion and Mouse Here, the Mouse saves the lion and they become friends Modernizing the story a little, there is mention that hunting lions is not considered good by today s standards.

  5. Hanna Yost says:

    This updated retelling stays true to the sound and rhythm of a fable and is absolutely heartwarming Lion and Mouse are foes turned friends and the illustrations accompanying their banter will delight readers.

    A retelling of the classic Fable, but in a funny and modern way that emphasizes compassion and kindness rather than economic reciprocity As the narrator says, it s a book about learning to be good to each other.

  7. Alyssa Gudenburr says:

    This picture book tells the traditional story of the lion and the mouse However, this version extends the story, showing how the lion and mouse become genuine friends This would make a better one on one story due to the small size of this book.

  8. Molly says:

    A little odd Doesn t have a timeless quality.

  9. Charlotte says:

    Insignificant means being of no use or importance and is the most insulting thing you could say about a mouse.

  10. Robin says:

    3.5 stars Nice version with a little extra personality to the characters.
