From the team that created the family favorite The Wolf Who Cried Boy comes this light hearted retelling of the Bible story about Daniel in the lions’ den.
When poor Daniel is thrown into the lions’ den by his enemies, he prays to God for help. Suddenly, an angel appears and convinces the lions that it’s not yet dinnertime—instead, it’s scratching time, and he gives the lions a good scratch behind the ears. Then it’s on to belly-rubbing time and sleeping time, so that when the king checks on Daniel in the morning, he’s safe and sound. But once Daniel is rescued, who will be next?
Featuring a fun read-aloud text and Tim Raglin’s hilarious cross-hatch illustrations, Dinner in the Lions’ Den is a clever introduction to a classic story of faith and redemption. Bon appétit!

PreSchool-Grade 2—When King Darius has Daniel thrown into the lions' den because he prays to his own God, an angel is sent down to help him—"a great big angel who was good with lions!" The celestial visitor manages to distract the big cats for a whole day, scratching behind their ears, rubbing their bellies, wrestling with them, and finally lulling them to sleep. The following morning, Daniel is released and his enemies are put in the den. The angel leaves the men to their own devices, telling the lions, "It's dinnertime." The lighthearted tone of the text and cartoon artwork (one amusing illustration shows the burly angel tumbling in a heap with the grinning lions, while another shows scrawny-looking Daniel comfortably reclining on top of the snoozing beasts) make for an enjoyable tale, but the implied gruesome ending may be too harsh for more sensitive readers.—Shelley B.
