Such a charming, delightful and beautiful book! The illustrations are cheerful and appealing. The story is wonderful. It is a about a lion who arrives at a library and just stays. It turns out the lion is very helpful around the library. Of course, the best part of each day for the lion is story time. Can the lion follow the rules? What could possibly go wrong? This story is sweet and funny. It is a wonderful tribute to libraries and shows children what wonderful, warm and welcoming places libraries can be for everyone. Highly recommended.

My son (almost 3 years old) loves this book! I'm a librarian, so there's no surprise he enjoys this library themed book. It's a wonderful story of acceptance and understanding that there's a time and a place for everything.

Our son LOVES this book, so much that it is one we are buying. He is 3 and a half and because he goes to toddler time he related really well and it helped me explain the library ad jobs of those he cares about more. The story is creative and fun, and not too long but more than the younger toddler books, I found it a great book.

I believe we have lost this book. What is the fee for a lost book?

A jem of a book. Beautiful illustrations and the story is just wonderful :)

Best suited for 5 and up as it is lengthy but it is a simple story with lots of heart to it which my 3.5 year old seemed to enjoy. I love the illustrations.

Original, sensitive, understated story based on the themes of fitting in and the purpose and spirit of when to follow rules and when to break them. The illustrator has a flare for drawing lions.
