Format: Paperback
This timeless tale could be called "why does the lion's tail change color"? The story has an almost Kipling-esque, timeless quality about it. The language is more simple than Kipling, but no less poetic and beautiful. And the illustrations are simply marvelous, detailed, and beautiful. This is one of my favorite picture books I have read to my children (ages 2 and 5).

I loved reading this book to our Storytime group when I owned a bookstore. We made an elaborate felt board for the story which the children enjoyed almost as much as I did. Selling this book was truly a delight because we knew it would be loved and cherished as it provided hours of pleasure over time. I particularly liked the author's creation of two very different creatures who, although unable to communicate directly, appreciated and respected each other without regard to their differences. The visual beauty of the book, along with its artistic theme might encourage its "readers" to explore their creative impulses.

I've had this book for four years and I've read it to my three kids about a million times. It's a good story and the illustrations are great. I'm not really sick of it after all this time, and how many books can you say that about?

It is very difficult to find stories that appeal to both children and parents. This one appeals to both. The drawings follow the story, but have enough detail to spend 10 minutes exploring. My daughter loves to point out all of the animals and children in the pictures as I read the text. All the while, I am enjoying the sweet story. This has quickly become my child's favorite bed time story.

By A Customer on March 1 2001
Format: Paperback
This is my favorite children's book. The illustrations are wonderfully cheerful. The message in the book is one that is not lost on even the smallest child - the lesson of friendship even when language is a barrier. Both my children ages 6 and 10 have always loved this book. I'd love to frame some of the pictures they are so beautiful. But the message is one we should instill upon all our children. To help those in need, to enjoy what others have to offer us, to see the beauty in the world and even when we can't understand each other to be able to appreciate each other. I highly recommend this book for everyone. It makes a great gift too.
