The Lion and the Bird

Translated by Sarah Ardizzone
£11.99

A lion in dungarees and a bird with a broken wing form an unlikely friendship when they meet one Autumn day. As the pair watch the other birds in the flock fly away, Lion takes it upon himself to care for his new friend. Soon the pair are sharing stories in front of the fire, taking sleigh rides and whiling away winter evenings in their slippers.

Then, one day spring arrives. And so too do the other birds. Will Lion and Bird have to say goodbye to their friendship for the summer?

REVIEWS

Wordless on many pages and illustrated with emotional economy in pencil, crayon and wash, it encompasses friendship, loss, the passing of the seasons and a happy ending. A pearl. {Nicolette Jones in The Sunday Times}

Arranged as spreads, vignettes and single pages we see how Lion supports Bird in every way he can. The narrative includes some bold approaches to storytelling that is most evident in the white pages that are not blank but instead poignant masterful inclusions. {Worldkidlit blog}
