The Lion and the Rat, Brian Wildsmith


Today's vintage children's book from 1963 is a classic fable, The Lion and the Rat, illustrated by Brian Wildsmith. I'm a big fan of Brian Wildsmith and his loose, color filled illustrations. Great moral in this story too, that you don't have to be big and powerful to make a difference.
