The third volume in the lavishly illustrated series of wildlife graphic novels, each following a single central animal through an adventurous day in their natural environment. Each tale depicts genuine natural behavior through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration. Both heartwarming and heartbreaking, this volume focuses on a solitary Lion as it wanders the plains of Africa, handling the daily hunt, and vicious rivalry, without a Pride of its own. The circle of Life takes center stage in a world where predator and prey trade places on a regular basis, and Family is something worth fighting -- and dying -- for. This exciting tale, written by Frederic Brremaud, is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci. A beautiful, powerful tale of survival in the animal kingdom that explores the all-too-identifiable, universal concepts of Life, Courage, Aging, and ultimately more

Review quote

KIRKUS -- Astonishingly beautiful... BOOKLIST (STARRED) -- A lion's life is not an easy one, and the third volume of the nature-focused Love series follows a solitary young male as he tries to fend for himself in the forests and plains of the Serengeti. Driven by hunger and loneliness, the lion wanders the changing landscape, finding food where he can and defending himself against attackers as he searches for the safety and stability that comes with a pride's large numbers. Framed by memories from his youth, this lion's story follows just one day, yet contains a lifetime of experience. While the wordless narrative is impressive in its emotional range and depth of character, Bertolucci's illustrations are an absolute marvel. Exquisitely rendered in lushly colored panels, they capture an entire ecosystem from the smallest of creatures to the largest link in a complex food chain. The deaths of creatures in the wild can be violent and intense, but they are realistically rendered and so firmly set within the larger framework of natural order one can almost hear David Attenborough narrating the panels for the reader. Beautifully produced in both concept and execution, this brief window into the world of nature is highly recommended for all graphic novel more
