How do you earn a lion diploma?

By looking fierce, prowling around, roaring, and – most importantly – looking out for your friends. Will this daring student pass the test?


Praise for this book:

'This funny picture book is about a little boy in a lion suit who gets seven lessons from a real lion in how to be one. He doesn't do too well on the roaring and the prowling, but when it comes to protecting a friend, he turns out to be lion-hearted. Full of wit, both visual and verbal.' Sunday Times Culture

'Thanks to Scallywag Press, the wit and wisdom of Jon Agee is becoming more familiar to UK audiences and this delightful picturebook will only add to his growing reputation. Lots of laughs for both adult and child readers.' LoveReading4Kids

'Delightfully simple and masterfully brilliant' Booktrust

'With its short, punchy sentences, cross-generational wit and an addictive sense of fun that imbues every page and every picture, this is Agee at his quirkiest and playful best!' Lancashire Post

'With its deliciously droll, punchy narrative and littering of splendidly comic details on every spread, Lion Lessons will keep listeners on the edge of their seats right up to its deadpan final twist. A simply stupendous, superbly paced read aloud say I; Jon Agee does it again.' Red Reading Hub

'Jon Agee's story has all the hallmarks of a classic picturebook and is instantly appealing to young readers with its clean storyline and tight, comedically expressive art. This fantastic story about the merits of practising being brave is sure to bring out the inner lion in every little reader.' Inis Magazine
