CRITICS HAVE SAID
- A nearly wordless exploration of Aesop’s fable of symbiotic mercy that is nothing short of masterful… Unimpeachable.
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
- Pinkney enriches this classic tale of friendship with another universal theme – family – affectingly illustrated in several scenes as well as in the back endpapers… African species grace splendid panoramas that balance the many finely detailed, closeup images of the protagonists. Pinkney has no need for words; his art speaks eloquently for itself.
