Age range 3 to 6 How do you earn a lion diploma?

By looking fierce, prowling around, roaring, and - most importantly - looking out for your friends.

Will this daring student pass the test?

'This fun journey of character development neatly turns the conversation from the cowardice of bullies towhat it means to be lionhearted, all in a delightful, subduedly comic package.' - Booklist, starred review 'Agee's sentences are short and punchy, and he carves out gouache shapes in thick, deliberate ink outlines. He sets up a ridiculous situation with a straight face, approaching it with understated humour and leonine confidence.'- Publishers Weekly, starred review 'An outstanding read-aloud and a rewarding story.' - Horn Book, starred review

Reviews for Lion Lessons

'This funny picture book is about a little boy in a lion suit who gets seven lessons from a real lion in how to be one. He doesn't do too well on the roaring and the prowling, but when it comes to protecting a friend, he turns out to be lion-hearted. Full of wit, both visual and verbal.' Sunday Times Culture;'Learning how to be a lion can be achieved in seven simple steps. A young boy is taking lion lessons and is determined to be successful. The boy doesn't make a very good student, until the final lesson of looking out for your friends.' Absolutely Mama;'Everyone will be rooting for the little boy who channels his inner big cat to save a little kitten from the bully neighbourhood dog, as he triumphs in the last lesson of Looking Out For Your Friends. Another Jon Agee treat to enhance your picturebook collection.' LoveReading;'Delightfully simple and masterfully brilliant' Book Trust;'With its deliciously droll, punchy narrative and littering of splendidly comic details on every spread, Lion Lessons will keep listeners on the edge of their seats right up to its deadpan final twist. A simply stupendous, superbly paced read aloud say I; Jon Agee does it again.' Red Reading Hub
