Synopsis

How Loud is a Lion? by Stella Blackstone

A crowd of colourful African creatures caper through this entertaining book, but none can compete with the terrifying roar of a lion! This book is written in simple text and is coupled with the repeated refrain to develop memory skills. In addition, the jungle setting and range of animals helps in building vocabulary. It is from the illustrator of Secret Seahorse (PB: 9781841488769; BB: 9781905236145).

Reviews

'The simple text is brought to life by endearing fabric applique illustrations. Each spread brims with cuddly looking felt animals and birds, adorned with button eyes, sequin spots, and pom-pom noses'

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer’s A Child’s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck’s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.
