Written by Polly Dunbar

Illustrated by Polly Dunbar

A Lion Is a Lion Synopsis

Dunbar's unexpected sense of humour make A Lion is a Lion every bit as original as Judith Kerr'sclassic Irish Times A deceptively simple and funny book The Daily Mail From the creator of Penguin and the Tilly and Friends series comes a wicked, rollicking read-aloud which asks the question: Is a lion still a lion if he ... wears a hat? And carries an umbrella? Is a lion still a lion if he ... arrives at your door and invites himself in with a How do you do? (Isn't he polite!) And is a lion still a lion if he asks for a dance? What about when he licks his lips and says, Oh yes, lunch would be lovely, thank you... Is a lion still a lion then?

A Lion Is a Lion Press Reviews
