Reviews

Praise for Lion Lessons

* "Agee's sentences are short and punchy, and he carves out gouache shapes in thick, deliberate ink outlines. He sets up a ridiculous situation with a straight face, approaching it with understated humor and leonine confidence."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Comical and engaging. . . . A roaring good selection for storytime or one-on-one sharing."--School Library Journal, starred review

* "This fun journey of character development neatly turns the conversation from the cowardice of bullies to what it means to be lionhearted, all in a delightful, subduedly comic package. 'Bravo!' said the lion."--Booklist, starred review

* "An outstanding read-aloud and a rewarding story."--Horn Book, starred review

"Blending sparse text with hilarious images, Agee mines a lot of humor. . . . A jubilant romp fit for a lion."--Kirkus
