Four of Caldecott-winner Leo Lionni's most beloved tales, together in one book with an introduction from Eric Carle!

Here in one sumptuous collection are four timeless picture book classics by Leo Lionni: Frederick, Swimmy, Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse, and Fish Is Fish. In this volume, meet Frederick, the poet field mouse whose happy memories help his family endure through the darkest days of winter; Swimmy, the imaginative minnow who uses his small size in a big way; Alexander, the mouse who learns the magic of friendship; and a fish who discovers that life in a small pond isn’t so bad after all.

Lionni’s complete texts and illustrations are included along with an introduction from Eric Carle and a CD reading in this elegant, inviting gift edition.
