'It's not easy getting your Lion Diploma.' So Jon Agee's little narrator begins his hilarious description of the crash course he took on becoming an honorary lion. At first he doesn't score high, but when it comes to rescuing an endangered neighbourhood cat, the lion in him is unleashed!
'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
'Comical and engaging. . . . A roaring good selection for storytime or one-on-one sharing' - School Library Journal
