The Three Happy Lions

Louise Fatio and Roger DuvoisinClick here for biography

The third adventure in this much-loved classic series is re-published for a new audience

'There was once ONE Happy Lion who lived in the zoo of a little French town. Then there were TWO Happy Lions, and that's better than one, because two is company. Then … one day … there were THREE Happy Lions…'

The proud parents are delighted with their new cub. But what profession could he have? How can they help launch him into the world?

Praise for this book:

'The bold colours of Duvoisin's mid-century artwork are as striking and as engaging as they were on their first publication, and his sense of movement and composition is second to none. Louise Fatio's text too is full of warmth and humour and its sprinkling of French phrases charming - a lovely opportunity for the very young to experience another language.'  5/5 stars Books for Keeps Book of the Week

'The Three Happy Lions has been re-published for a new generation to enjoy. Set in France this story includes themes of family dynamics, individuality and being true to yourself. Well done Scallywag Press re-introducing us to these gems.' Book & Gift Blogger

'With its gentle sense of fun and mischief, beguiling French backdrop, and clever use of occasional French words to introduce children to the culture of another country, these powerfully emotive and entertaining books have certainly stood the test of time and are the ideal gift for a new generation of readers.' Lancashire Evening Post

'With its occasional French phrases and its enchanting illustrations it’s good to see this book back in print again. I loved The Happy Lion as a child but was not familiar with this story of being true to yourself.' Red Reading Hub
