Jerry Pinkney talks about his new wordless picture book, The Lion and the Mouse, an adaptation of Aesop's fable of the same name. Pinkney is the 2010 recipient of the Randolph Caldecott Medal awarded annually to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.
I'll be toddling into Readings for my copy of this one when next I'm in Melbourne. I know Jemimah is probably a bit old, but her mummy's not!!
