Lionel’s roar was deafening, and he loved it. He resisted all requests to tone it down a bit. Then one day, he woke up and couldn’t make a sound! The dynamic and appealing cast of characters in the book finally have a turn sounding off themselves as he remains helpless to reply. Then Monkey shows him that he can draw, and a new world of communication opens up for the little lion.

Children and adults will enjoy reading this book over and over, finding more and more details in the cheerful illustrations. Of course, the story has a happy ending but leaves enough unanswered questions to trigger discussion. A terrific gift item, let customers know this one offers a Socratic lesson as well.
