The lion and the mouse by Jenny Broom; illustrated by Nahta Noj (2014)

[Published by Templar Books]

untitledThis gorgeous wee book called my name from the library shelf. Add to that its cover announcement, “Peek-through windows on every page!” and there was no chance of me leaving the library without it.

I love Aesop’s fables and this is a bright, accessible modern version for a new generation.

“Once upon a time, there lived a great and mighty lion and a hungry little mouse.”IMG_1795

You know how the rest of the story goes, and if you don’t, then this is the perfect version for you!

Check out The lion and the mouse at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy The lion and the mouse from Fishpond.
