Jerry Pinkney was an illustrator of children's books and the winner of numerous awards including one Caldecott Medal and five Caldecott Honors. In 2004 he won the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion for outstanding contributions in the field of children’s literature.



This is a beautiful story by Hans Christian Andersen. An egg is found in the nest amid the others. This one is quite different than the others. When hatched it is quite strange. Away from the others he is ostracized. Diving into the deep, freezing cold, alone and freezing, caught in the ice death seems near. But even though he did not have enough to eat, slowly the earth became more soft and tender. In front of him were a flock of birds, very much like him, ever so slowly, he gained strength and began to stretch himself down into the water he began to fly, and those who saw him believed he was the most beautiful of all.… (lisätietoja)

Gr 3–7—This illustrated memoir centers the late Caldecott Medalist's childhood in 1940s Philadelphia, capturing his
voice and heart through the sepia-toned sketches and earnest recollections. Perhaps we didn't get to read this as
Pinkney had envisioned it, but for his admirers and kids everywhere, this is just perfect.

I think this book should be used for intermediate students because the illustrations show a lot is going on and I am not sure if younger students would fully understand what is happening. The story is of a mouse and a lion in the jungle. The lion lets the mouse go and in return the mouse helps the lion out of being captured.
