Meet the Author
Though many modern scholars dispute his existence, Aesop's life was chronicled by first century Greek historians who wrote that Aesop, or Aethiop, was born into Greek slavery in 620 B.C. Freed because of his wit and wisdom, Aesop supposedly traveled throughout Greece and was employed at various times by the governments of Athens and Corinth. Some of Aesop's most recognized fables are The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Ant and the Grasshopper. His simple but effective morals are widely used and illustrated for children.
Bernadette Watts has loved to draw since her childhood in England. She created her first picture book under the influence of Beatrix Potter. Watts studied at the Maidstone Art School in Kent and is the illustrator of North South fairy tales The Snow Queen and The Ugly Duckling.

The Lion & the Mouse Illustrations are truly delightful and I have given this book to several friends to share with their children and Grand Children, because it is such a nice story also. I would like to have had it in hardback, but this was the only thing available at the time I was ordering before Christmas. One friend said she is going to make sure her children have more books than toys, thus what a treasure to find a book that will last in their library for years to come. MTLor
I really love this book. Even though I am not that little to still read it, I still do, once in a while. This book really impacted my life.
