Product Description

When a city mouse passes through a quiet community of field mice, he regales them with tales about Mardi Gras, a big celebration in the city. What fun it would be to make masks of fearsome animals and have their own Mardi Gras parade, think the field mice. At first it is fun wearing their masks with sharp teeth and tusks and scaring each other, but then the field mice start to believe that they really are ferocious animals. A winsome tale about what is real and what is not, The Greentail Mouse is sure to delight Leo Lionni fans of all ages.

Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators’ Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as "a master of the simple fable" by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.

Editorial Reviews

"A charming fable, it deserves to take its place once again with other beloved Lionni favorites." —Children’s Literature

"The art is gorgeous." —The Horn Book Magazine
