All lions are fierce, right? Well, maybe, just maybe, this Lion - so well dressed and polite and charming - isn't too fierce for you...

From the creator of Penguin and the Tilly and Friends series comes a wicked, rollicking read-aloud which asks the question: Is a lion still a lion if he ... wears a hat? And carries an umbrella? Is a lion still a lion if he ... arrives at your door and invites himself in with a "How do you do?" (Isn't he polite!) And is a lion still a lion if he asks for a dance? What about when he licks his lips and says, "Oh yes, lunch would be lovely, thank you..." Is a lion still a lion then?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A rousing read-aloud delight, with a trust your instincts message." * Metro *
Dunbar's beautiful new picture book, with its rich, inky line, is something of a refutation of The Tiger Who Came to Tea. A wild beast, it warns, is still dangerous, however polite and friendly t seems, and even if it dances like Gene Kelly." * Sunday Times *
"A wonderfully raucous read-aloud romp." * Baby Hampshire *
"a rhythmic, musical text which brilliantly involves the young reader in the unfolding storyline" * Parent Talk *
"Children will adore following the jaunty, ever so polite Lion as he asks to come to tea but whose manners firmly escape him when it comes to pudding." * Shelley Fallows LoveReading4Kids, February 2018 Picture Book of the Month *
I'd say this is a must-have in the classroom for its message: With it's Seuss-like turn in the final pages, the children get the upper hand and learn to say 'No! No! No! NO!', so delivering brilliantly a message about keeping safe, and learning to say 'No' if something makes them feel uncomfortable. * School Zone *

The Tiger Who Came to Tea will be an obvious point of comparison, but
Dunbar's inimitable watercolour style and her unexpected sense of humour make A Lion is a Lion every bit as original as Judith Kerr's classic.

* Irish Times *
[...] a story with playful language and rhyme that will delight families with young children. This modern fable will become a favourite for many families as children ask to share it again and again, so they can squeal with joy each time." * BookTrust *
"This is a lovely book with rhyming text and funny illustrations." * Pat Thompson, Carousel *
"Joyous and very funny with a bit of a dramatic twist; a wonderful story from an author who really understands children." * Fallen Star Stories *
