The Lion and The Mouse

Since college, I have been slowly collecting all the Caldecott (and Newberry) award winners (and some of the honor books).  I bought this one, The Lion and The Mouse, (the 2010 winner) a few years ago. 

It is a wordless, illustrated book retelling one of Aesop's fables.  I was reluctant to add it to Theo's library since it is so gorgeous, and I haven't actually spent a lot of time with this book yet with Theo, but someone has, because this was what happened during playtime today.

Theo (to Eli): 

"You mouse.  I a lion.  ROAAAARRRRRR!

Don't wake me up!"

It was too cute for words.
