Synopsis

How to be a Lion by Ed Vere

Meet Leonard - a lion like no other. Leonard's best friend is Marianne, a duck. But lions chomp ducks, don't they? And what will the pair do when their way of life is threatened?

Reviews

Positive role models showing boys how to be a whole person are few and far between these days. This marvellous book triumphs in that essential job. * Kirkus *

Leonard is a lion like no other: he loves poetry and daydreaming and his best friend is a duck. But how will the pair react when their way of life is threatened and the other lions insist Leonard should be fierce? Framed by a glowing palette of burnt yellows and oranges, and infused with humour and warmth, this thought-provoking fable celebrates courage, individuality and the power of words. * The Bookseller *

The story's confiding, narrative voice draws readers in close, while bold, scrabbly ink lines by British author-illustrator Vere (the Max picture books) add life and giggles to Leonard and Marianne's friendship. Vere's fable makes a watertight-and charming-case for ignoring the pressures of conformity. * Publishers Weekly *
