Product Description

One day a lion walks into a library and settles in for story hour. This lion gets along very well in the library, his large feet pad around quietly, he's a good backrest for the children during story hour, and he helps dust all of the shelves with his tail. But one day an accident happens, will the lion be able to do everything he can to get help . . . even if it means breaking the library rules?

Publisher's Description

An affectionate storybook tribute to that truly wonderful place: the library.


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. Michelle Knudsen's disarming story, illustrated by the matchless Kevin Hawkes in an expressive timeless style, will win over even the most ardent of rule keepers.
