Longlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books. August 2015 Debut of the Month

Emma Carlisle brings the world of a little girl’s imagination gloriously to life in this truly lovely picturebook. Laura loves her practice sessions – she practices being a kangaroo, a parrot and an elephant, but best of all is lion practice when she can leap, hide, run and ROAR! It’s a bit much for Mum and Dad, but they find a way to accommodate their little lion. The pencil and crayon illustrations perfectly match the playful, lively tone of the story and are full of funny little details for children and parents to spot. Emma Carlisle is an exciting new talent in children’s books.

Synopsis

Lion Practice by Emma Carlisle

Laura loves to practise. She's been a kangaroo, a parrot and a crocodile - but nothing beats being a LION! It's fun to leap, run and roar really loudly, isn't it? Laura's patient parents aren't so sure. So when Laura takes a lion-sized leap too far, she gets a small telling off. But like all good lions, Laura soon bounces back and it isn't very long before her Mum, Dad and baby brother are joining in the game.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

Cat Bisland (on behalf of the Bi

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
