It's a pleasure to report that the winner of this year's prestigious Caldecott Medal, The Lion and The Mouse, was produced by Imago Singapore.
This retelling of Aesop's classic fable, in which the tiny mouse finds a way to help his majestic friend the lion, was written and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. It was published by Little, Brown a division of Hachette.
Production Director Shari Lichtner of Hachette had this to say:
“You guys did an awesome job on this book. I hope you let EVERYONE know how grateful we are. The pre-press, printing, entire package is incredible. I know how difficult his artwork can be ... and whoever handled the on press quality is to be commended.
This title first printed in Spring 2009 and is now on its fifth reprint, so IMSing has been working quite hard to keep it in print!”
