This is a charming, moving and utterly delightful picture book that will enchant the reader as well as the one read to. Dubuc's deceptively simple illustrations beautifully enhance the text. The story is a simple one of help given, friendship formed, loss and recovery. There are many lovely picture books published every season but this is one of the best. Give yourself a treat and spend a few minutes reading this.— From Michael
One autumn day, a lion finds a wounded bird in his garden. With the departure of the bird's flock, the lion decides that it's up to him to care for the bird. He does and the two become fast friends. Nevertheless, the bird departs with his flock the following autumn. What will become of Lion and what will become of their friendship?
