From Booklist:

Gr. 1. This colorful reader from the Early Step into Reading series retells one of Aesop's fables. A powerful lion catches a mouse, who begs the beast to free him. In return, he says, he will someday help the lion. Amused, the lion frees the mouse. Part 2 begins with these simple words: "Big Lion. Big net. Big, big trouble." The trapped lion roars, bringing the mouse, who chews through the net and sets him free. With watercolor illustrations as simple and dramatic as the tale, this book tells a classic story in a form accessible to young children. A good choice for libraries looking for classic tales easy enough for beginning readers. Carolyn Phelan
