Gorgeous illustrations! There was so much rich detail and color embedded into every page in this story. The different swirls and shapes made up vivid and realistic characters. This story had no text, but the pictures more then made up for the story. The illustrations of the little mouse were so well done that I felt like I knew his personality and some of his mannerisms - he was charming and cute. The lion was majestic and fierce. I thought this was a remarkable book and could envision myself reading it over and over. Definitely worthy of the Caldecott Medal.

Ronyell I recently read this book and I agree that this book was just so perfect! The illustrations told the story so well and I'm glad that it won the Caldecott Medal, because it greatly deserves it.

Laura I really enjoyed this book. I totally agree, this book didn't need text because the illustrations were so good.

Ronyell I wonder if there were any other pictures books that were wordless but were really great? The only ones that come to mind are David Wiesner's books and The Yellow Umbrella by Henrik Drescher.
