Seven Blind Mice
When a strange Something appears at a watering hole, the seven blind mice begin investigating. Each believes it's something else - a fan, a rope, a snake, a pillar, a spear, and a cliff. It's not until the seventh mouse runs up and down, back and forth, that they see the whole picture"it's an elephant! Based on an Indian folktale, this book demonstrates how truly important it is to look at the big picture. 10"x 11", sc. ~ Emily G
"It's a pillar," says one. "It's a fan," says another. One by one, the seven blind mice investigate the strange Something by the pond. And one by one, they come back with a different theory. It's only when the seventh mouse goes out-and explores the whole Something-that the mice see the whole truth. Based on a classic Indian tale, Ed Young's beautifully rendered version is a treasure to enjoy again and again.
