Description

In this wordless adaptation of one of Aesop’s most beloved fables, an unlikely pair learn that no act of kindness is ever wasted. With vivid depictions of the landscape of the African Serengeti and expressively-drawn characters, Pinkney makes this a truly special retelling. Combined with a rich soundtrack featuring traditional African vocal music and natural sound effects, Pinkney&#39s stunning pictures speak volumes.
