Library Lion

Michelle Knudsen

Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.

This beautifully illustrated story of a Lion finding his way into a Library and learning how to follow the rules, being helpful and listening to stories. But when something bad happens can a library forgive a Lion who breaks the rules? This book is stunning and the illustrations of the Lion are so full of expression and personality you will think you are one of the kids in storytime with him. The message of following the rules, being helpful and breaking the rules to be more helpful is wonderful for young ones. Everyone should have Library Lion in their picture book library!
