2010 Caldecott Medal Winner (given to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children)
"The Lion & the Mouse" illustrated and written by Jerry Pinkney from Little, Brown.
Described by judges as "The screech of an owl, the squeak of a mouse and the roar of a lion transport readers to the Serengeti plains for this virtually wordless retelling of Aesop’s classic fable. In glowing colors, Pinkney’s textured watercolor illustrations masterfully portray the relationship between two very unlikely friends."
