Description

The lion at the little French zoo is a favorite of all the townspeople. Every day they stop by to feed him tidbits and say, -Bonjour, Happy Lion.- Naturally, when the lion finds his door open, he decides it would only be proper to visit all his friendly neighbors in return. But, wait--sacre bleu! Why is everyone fleeing in terror? -Louise Fatio's timeless tale about friendship still sparkles and Roger Duvoisin's elegant illustrations are as engaging as ever in this 50th Anniversary edition.- --School Library Journalshow more
