Book Review #1385 Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen
Book Review #1385
Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes
Rating: four stars (out of four)
I loved this story. It was a really sweet tale of friendship, lions, and libraries all bundled in one neat little package. The ending was especially sweet and I couldn't help but smile when things finally fell back into place. I also fell in love with the illustrations - they perfectly suited the book. The soft colors and hues greatly added to the gentle and loving atmosphere of the library setting. The people and lion were drawn beautifully. This is a book I could see myself reading again and again and I think that children will love the whimsical and imaginative qualities. After reading I really wished there was a lion at my library. Definitely recommend!
