The Literal Elements
How appealing is The Lion and The Mouse to the eye?
Throughout the story, the illustrations are occasionally framed with a small, thin yellowish/gold border (as seen above). On the other occasion the illustrations bleed off the page, like a photograph of nature bleeds off the corners of the picture. The natural elements create the sense of a frame around the characters, as they bleed of the page. This is done to help you focus on the story, and the journey our main characters, the lion, and mouse will go on.
