The Lion & the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney | Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersIn the story, a mouse's life is a spared by a lion. Later, after the lion is trapped, the mouse is able to set the lion free.

While it was Pinkney's first wordless picture book, it was not the first time he had told the story, having previously included it in his Aesop's Fables , published in Pinkney, who had received five Caldecott Honors , became the first African American to win the Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in the book. His illustrations were generally praised for their realism and sense of place.
