A Lion in Paris£12.99
A Lion in Paris is widely regarded as the most accomplished book by multi-award-winning children’s author/illustrator, Beatrice Alemagna. It tells the story of a lion who, bored by his rural life in the savannah, seeks excitement and opportunity in the city of light. On arrival in Paris the lion is disappointed to find that despite his size, people barely pay attention to him, not even when he lets out a ferocious roar on the busy underground Metro. Taking in the sights and sounds of Paris this beautifully illustrated book successfully conveys the experience of being a stranger in a new city and the process of understanding our own identity.
A Lion in Paris is a perfect story-time book for children aged 3+ and should still be exciting for early readers. Great for adventure lovers!
