Synopsis

Little Lion by Lesley Beake

One day, Dad comes home with a lion. Brought you a dog, says Dad. Mum and the children don't believe him, but they call it Dog, let it sleep in the dog basket, and keep quiet about their strange, noisy pet. But Big Jonno, the school bully, is curious, and tries to make life tough, until one day, the worst thing happens - the Lion escapes and finds Big Jonno. This delightfully surreal story by a multi-award-winning author and talented illustrator - in which a bully gets his just deserts - will keep young readers guessing all the way through!

Reviews

Deserving some real success, this large hard-back picture-story book will readily delight many children. Brightly and boldly illustrated, the amusing, well-handled narrative has its roots in a South African take. School Librarian
