Lion in Paris


A Lion in Paris‘ shares the tale of a lion who seeks recognition and excitement in Paris. The busy city barely pays him a glance, and he is scared and lost. However, the lights, scale and majesty of his destination intrigue him. Cleverly, Beatrice Alemagna has created the book so it opens in portrait style and its scale (30 cm x 40cm) adds to the awe inspired by Lion and his experience.

Lion travels from the Cafe de Flare to the Metro to the Louvre. He is exhausted by the steps to Sacre Coeur, but thrilled by the majesty of the Eiffel Tower.

Lion’s journey through Paris becomes ours. We move from feeling his initial fear to being awed and entranced by this beautiful world he uncovers.

A Lion in Paris‘ is a magnificent book. We recommend it to readers of all ages, especially those who appreciate the brilliance of picture books, and love Paris.
