    This is an almost entirely wordless book The only words are sounds and owl hooting, the mouse squeaking, etc The illustrations are simply lovely and I was amazed that Pinkney could convey the emotion he did while still managing to keep the animals looking real I wasn t familiar with this version of the fable, and don t want to spoil it for anyone else Let me simply say that it isn t a thorn in the paw this time.I especially enjoyed the author s note, where Pinkney says that he was, as This is an almost entirely wordless book The only words are sounds and owl hooting, the mouse squeaking, etc The illu...
