Everyone knows that once a lemur takes a fancy to you there is not much that can be done about it. That's just what happens to a little boy when a lemur begins to follow him in the park one day—and more of the adoring animals join in. The boy does everything to ditch the playful creatures, from jumping on a train to flying in a hot-air balloon to climbing the highest mountain. But nothing works—AND he's lost, too! It's then that his constant companions show just why they make the very best of friends. The parade of lovable lemurs, and the playful illustrations, will have children laughing, reading this again and again-and wishing they could have a pet like that, too.

About the Author:

Frann Preston-Gannon is an illustrator and designer based in south London. She graduated from Kingston University and has worked for a variety of clients including Vintage Books, Sunday Publishing, the PRCA, Spears Magazine, Pavilion Books, the London Times, and Burt's Bees. She has written and illustrated two previous picture books, The Journey Home and Dinosaur Farm (both Pavilion Press). Frann was the first non-American illustrator selected to receive the prestigious Sendak Fellowship. This gave her the rare opportunity to encounter and be inspired by the great artist himself, to explore his treasured archives, and enjoy lectures by brilliant guest visitors.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—What do you do if a lemur takes a liking to you? Well, if you are the little boy in this book, you do whatever it takes to try and lose it-whether that means climbing a tree, riding a bike, taking a train, or crossing a desert. The lemurs in this tale are persistent, though, and it's a good thing, because when the young narrator finds himself lost and far from home, the friendly lemurs are there to help the boy find his way home again. The story builds upon itself in a way that brings to mind Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (HarperCollins, 1985), and young readers/listeners will want to know what happens next. Preston-Gannon's illustrations appear collage-like and fill the pages with brightness. The lemurs are definitely the stars here, looking cute enough to cuddle, and the illustration of them snorkeling is sure to elicit giggles from kids. This title would be a fun addition to a storytime on transportation or unusual animals. Recommended for general purchase.—Heather Webb, Worthington Libraries, OH
