Alone with a book

Johnny Lion is home alone with his new books, The Little Lion. The book is about a lion cub who is on his own one day, just like Johnny. But, unlike Johnny Lion, this cub walks out into the world alone--and into lots of trouble!

Review:

Johnny Lion's mother and father are going out hunting. "Be a good little lion," says Mother Lion. "Do not go out of the house." But Johnny has something better to do. He has a brand-new book! "Oh no," he says. "I will not go out of the house. I will read my book all day long." At first he does not read very well. He tries and tries until he can finally read the story. Imagine his surprise when it turns out to be all about a little lion a lot like himself, with parents who go out hunting for something good to eat, just like Johnny's parents. As Johnny reads about Oscar P. Lion's exciting day--escaping a crocodile, trying to hunt, getting lost--he begins to feel like he's the one having the adventures.

Every child who first discovers the magic of reading knows what it's like to be absorbed by a new (or old) storybook. The classic pairing of Edith Thacher Hurd and her husband Clement Hurd (illustrator of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny) in the Johnny Lion books (Johnny Lion's Rubber Boots and Johnny Lion's Bad Day)is a welcome treat for any reader, veteran or novice. Clement Hurd's yellow and red lions are some of the most appealing felines readers are likely to encounter on or off the page. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author:

Edith Thacher Hurd was born in Kansas City, Missouri. She wrote more than seventy-five children's books, including Starfish, I Dance in My Red Pajamas and the Johnny Lion books, many of which were illustrated by her husband, Clement Hurd.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros. Allí fue donde desarrolló su estilo característico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste.
