9780375927591: The Happy Lion

Having been visited by the townspeople at the zoo for many years, a friendly lion decides to take a walk into town after the zoo keeper forgets to lock his gate one day, but things go very wrong when his arrival causes chaos as all his friendly visitors begin to run in fear upon his approach.

From the Inside Flap:

A friendly lion in a small French zoo enjoys the visits of the townspeople who stop by each day to say “Bonjour, Happy Lion.” So one day, when the zoo keeper forgets to close the lion’s door, the Happy Lion decides to return the visits to all the nice people of the town. To his amazement, as he strolls through the town his friends scream and run from him, the police and fire brigade are called, and people cower in their shops or houses. How a small boy saves the day concludes a wonderfully satisfying story that is just the right length for bedtime or anytime.

At age 50, The Happy Lion continues to charm and delight and Alfred A. Knopf is proud to reissue it for today’s young children.

About the Author:

Louise Fatio collaborated with her famous illustrator husband, Roger Duvoisin, on The Happy Lion, one of the most beloved stories of the mid-20th century. Long unavailable, it was reissued in a hardcover edition to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2004. She was born in Switzerland in 1904 and died in New Jersey in 1993.

Roger Duvoisin, a Caldecott Medal winner, wrote and illustrated 40 books, including those featuring Veronica the conspicuous hippopotamus and Petunia the silly goose. He collaborated with his wife, Louise Fatio, on nine more Happy Lion stories. He was born in Switzerland in 1904 and died in New Jersey in 1980.
