In the lion by James Foley (2012)

I’ve never considered it before, but maybe there is such an occupation as a lion dentist. In the lion doesn’t exactly sell it as a viable career choice.

This very funny cumulative tale of woe begins with a city, a zoo, and a lion. From thereon in things get a little salivatory (or possibly stomach-churning if you’re not a lion).

The lion’s unstoppable appetite and access to a key to his IMG_1159enclosure starts to look bad for the world in general, but luckily a small and plucky boy named Richard saves the day.

With wonderful illustrations worth examining closely and a very appealing “bad guy”, this is a yet another book worth checking out!

Check out In the lion at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy In the lion from Fishpond.
