With the wit and read-aloud appeal of Peter Brown s "Children Make Terrible Pets" and William Steig s "Pete s a Pizza," this funny, fierce picture book teaches kids just what it takes to be a great lion
There are seven steps to becoming a proper lion, including Looking Fierce, Roaring, Prowling Around, and Pouncing. Our young hero, a rather meek and scrawny human boy, does his best to learn the necessary skills during his training with a master instructor (who just happens to be a real lion). After a grueling set of lessons, the boy discovers that that the final step Looking Out for Your Friends is the most important of all. That s how any kid can earn his lion diploma (not to mention the affection of every cat in town)."
Jon Agee is the beloved author and illustrator of many acclaimed picture books, including Terrific (a New York Times Best Illustrated Book), Milo's Hat Trick (an ALA Notable Book), and Little Santa , an ALA Notable Book and recipient of five starred reviews. He lives in San Francisco, California.
