Review

Praise for The Lion and the Mouse:

2011 Caldecott Medal Winner
Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine 100 Greatest Books for Kids
Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine Most Beautifully Illustrated


* "Pinkney enriches this classic tale of friendship with another universal theme - family - affectingly illustrated in several scenes as well as in the back endpapers... African species grace splendid panoramas that balance the many finely detailed, closeup images of the protagonists. Pinkney has no need for words; his art speaks eloquently for itself."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "A nearly wordless exploration of Aesop's fable of symbiotic mercy that is nothing short of masterful... Unimpeachable."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Pinkney's luminous art, rendered in watercolor and colored pencil, suggests a natural harmony... The ambiguity that results from the lack of words in this version allows for a slower, subtle, and ultimately more satisfying read. Moments of humor and affection complement the drama. A classic tale from a consummate artist."―School Library Journal, starred review

* "By retelling Aesop's fable entirely in his signature pencil and watercolor art, Pinkney encourages closer exploration of the pleasing detail with which he amplifies it... It will be a challenge for libraries to make every gorgeous surface available, but it's a challenge worth taking on."―The Horn Book, starred review

"Here, Pinkney is audacious, courageous, or simply imaginative enough to retell the classic Aesop fable without text... As a master of the media, [he] handles pencil and transparent watercolors with added colored pencils to create naturalistic characters while avoiding the strictures of photorealism. This is a stunning tour de force."―Children's Literature

"This version of the familiar Aesop's fable--lushly illustrated and set in Africa's Serengeti region--offers a unique, and memorable, concluding twist."―The Washington Post


"A child will get lost in the illustrations and grow old with this beauty."―Verily Magazine


Praise for Little Red Riding Hood:
"The beautifully designed and rendered artwork--including snowy woodland scenes, glimpses of Grandma's homey cottage, close-ups of Red Riding Hood, and a very wily wolf--make this book a standout."―School Library Journal (starred review)

"A delightful, old-fashioned version of the tale. With lively detail...the pictures reflect the danger and coziness, and are just right for their preschool audience."―Booklist
