And from Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo - 'Funny and warm-hearted. I loved reading this with my daughter'
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 funn about having a lion in the house. Luckily, there are lots of good places to hide a lion - behind the shower curtain, in your bed and even up a tree. But can Iris hide her lion forever? A funny, heart-warming story about a very special friendship, from the creator of Fleabag and The Night Iceberg.
