The Lion Inside

Author: Rachel Bright
Illustrator: Jim Field
Publisher: Orchard

A little mouse wants to be noticed and thinks that the way to achieve this must be to learn how to roar like the lion who all the animals appear to admire. But which is the only animal who can really teach him this? The resulting encounter turns out to be life changing for both creatures. The rhyming text encourages a lot of prediction and the language is enjoyable and playful. This extends into the way the font size is used to emphasis certain words.
