When the teacher announces that the class will stage The Lion and the Mouse, Ari is thrilled. He knows he'll make a wonderful lion – even his name means ‘lion'! But shy little Ari is neither noticed nor chosen. He goes home disappointed, but suddenly in his room a roaring, growling, prowling creature comes to life… and a small, squeaky one too! The flat illustrative style with its strong kitschy palette gets away from usual depictions of the ‘soft, sensitive' child, and captures the energy and fun of play-acting.

Sure to touch many a heart

The author has done a great job of depicting how the child gets over his own limitations with a little help from his mother, who knows him well... With bold illustrations and minimal text per page, the book is sure to touch many a heart. Saffron Tree
