Note: The blank pages are not a defect but part of the storytelling. The snow increases until all the animals can see is white.

One autumn day, a lion finds a wounded bird in his garden. With the departure of the bird's flock, the lion decides that it's up to him to care for the bird. He does and the two become fast friends. Nevertheless, the bird departs with his flock the following autumn. What will become of Lion and what will become of their friendship?

Review:

Selected as the 2014 Booklist Editors' Choice Top of the List--Picture Book selection
Brain Pickings #1 Best Picture Book of 2014.
#1 Best Picture Book of 2014 for Smart Books for Smart Kids

The intimacy of friendship, as well as the bittersweet sweep of time, is exquisitely rendered in this spare story of a kindly lion who rescues an injured bird flying south for winter . . . A much needed antidote to the speed of the world, this picture book by French Canadian Dubuc is one to savor.” STARRED REVIEW, Booklist
The Lion and the Bird (Enchanted Lion, May 2014), is a tender and moving story of friendship . . . There’s a lot of emotion, Dubuc conveying a great deal with her soft lines and warm palette” -- Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

The Lion and the Bird is ineffably wonderful, the kind of treasure to which the screen and the attempted explanation do no justice a book that, as it was once said of The Little Prince, will shine upon your soul, whether child or grown-up, with a sidewise gleam” and strike you in some place that is not the mind” to glowing there with inextinguishable light.” -- Brain Pickings
. . . full of subtle humor and drama that resonates rather than disappears. This is a friendship story full of empathy and beauty. . . . The clearly-rendered illustrations feature a muted palette that perfectly matches the tone of the story.” -- School Library Journal

Dubuc excels at capturing emotions visually. The angle of Lion’s posture, with a single nuanced line for his mouth, evinces joy or sadness. White space sometimes whole pages speaks its own language of loss and hope . . . A sensitive, uplifting meditation.” -- Kirkus Reviews

The Lion and the Bird is the kind of book that will endure time and bring hours of thought and conversation about friendship, diversity and seasons. It is simply a beautiful creation and my pick for this year’s Caldecott.” -- 36 Pages

It’s a remarkably moving, and considering it features two animals deeply human story.” -- STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

This is the kind of story that enriches your soul and leaves you feeling hopeful and happy. Both you and your child will want to linger over the pages and fully take in all there is to see with the beautiful illustrations.” -- Smart Books for Smart Kids

Dubuc’s art is exceptional . . . A noteworthy picture book, this new title by Dubuc is charming and warm.” -- Waking Brain Cells
"Pretty much by definition, quiet books tend to fly under the radar. Some rightfully so, as the wick is turned down so low it struggles to keep from extinguishing completely. But then you have books like The Lion and the Bird by Marianne Dubuc (Animal Masquerade) full of subtle humor and drama that resonates rather than disappears. This is a friendship story full of empathy and beauty." -- 100 Scope Notes
"Dubuc’s charming, pastel-hued illustrations convey gentle humor and genuine feeling. The story’s measured pacing allows readers to discover and relish each emotional nuance. A lovely choice to share and savor." Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
