Helen Stephens' bestselling story is now available in a chunky board book format, perfect for babies and toddlers. How does a very small girl hide a very large lion? It's not easy, but Iris has to do her best, because mums and dads can be funny about having a lion in the house.

This is one of the loveliest picture books of the year. A wonderful warm-hearted story of friendship with plenty of humour thrown in.

And from Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo - 'Funny and warm-hearted. I loved reading this with my daughter'
