The Greentail Mouse - Hardcover
Lionni, Leo
The beloved fable from four-time Caldecott Honor winner Leo Lionni!

Originally published in 1973, this is the offbeat fable of a city mouse who visits his peaceful country cousins and tells them about Mardi Gras in the city. The country mice are inspired to have their own Mardi Gras. And at first it is fun wearing their masks with sharp teeth and tusks and scaring each other, but after a while they begin believing that they really are ferocious animals.

Leo Lionni's winsome mice cavort across big double-page spreads of oil paintings and tell a story about what is real and what is not that is just right for preschoolers.

Tillie and the Wall - Softcover
Lionni, Leo
Illus. in full color. "Lionni's inquisitive, clever mice prove once more the
value of the fable as a storytelling device, especially when it is simply told
and beautifully illustrated. Confined to a meadow behind a high wall, Tillie
longs to discover the unknown world beyond the wall. It takes all of Tillie's
determination to find a way to the other side. A superior picture book, this
should be a perennial favorite for primary grade story hours."--(starred)
