Mouse & Lion

  • From the illustrator of the classic edition of Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    On a ridge above the Kalihari,
    Lion naps, until Mouse bumbles into him,
    willy-nilly, startling him awake.
    After a show of teeth, Lion is softened
    by Mouse's pledge of loyalty
    and sets him free.

    When a cold moon brings a humbling lesson, 
    Lion comes to recognize
    Mouse's keen skill, and deeper kindness.

    Mouse and Lion, Aesop's fabled duo,
    renew their ancient bond
    in this warm retelling by Rand Burkert,
    illuminated by the authentic natural detail
    of Nancy Ekholm Burkert's art.
