Do you know the difference between knowledge and wisdom? In this Indian fable, six different-colored, blind mice explore a “strange Something by their pond.” One by one they come back with conflicting bits of information. Then the seventh mouse goes out to investigate the complete “Something”—and brings back the whole truth.

Vibrant collage illustrations. Paperback, 40 pages. Caldecott Honor Award. Ages 3 to 7.
