Winner of the Caldecott Medal

From Our Editors

"Short, original fables with fresh, unexpected morals poke subtle fun at human foibles through the antics of animals. . . . The droll illustrations, with tones blended to luminescent shading, are complete and humorous themselves".--ALA Booklist. Caldecott Medal winner.
