The Lovereading4Kids comment

A little girl finds the courage to stand up to a bully with the help of a clever plan. About to become lunch for Lion, Sarah has to think fast to save herself. What can she do in the jungle that no other animal can? Sarah can draw and soon she’s made all the animals happy with her pictures. Except for Lion. Lion hates the way he looks cross and angry in Sarah’s picture. But the picture doesn’t lie and all the other animals tell Lion so. Lion must change his ways to get a better picture of himself. And he does! Happiness all round.


Lion's Lunch by Fiona Tierney

When Lion meets Sarah walking in the jungle singing a happy song, he tells her she shouldn't be there! Nobody in his jungle just walks or sings: they prowl, creep, swing, lumber, slither and stampede. Or, they roar, yowl, grunt, chatter and harrumph!

An uplifting story that will inspire courage and confidence in all!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

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

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
