Synopsis: Prince Leo discovers a new treasure -- books
When Prince Leo, a lion, is born with wings on his back, his father bellows, "Our son will go far!" It's not long before that declaration takes on a literal meaning. The day arrives when Leo flaps his wings and learns that flying is simple - but stopping is another story. Exhausted and far from home, he eventually crash-lands and is found by King Otto of the North, a bear who cares for Leo while he recovers. The best medicine of all turns out to be the books that are read to him - Leo's kingdom doesn't have books. When he's finally ready to return home - after taking flying and reading lessons - Leo will be bringing a wonderful treasure back with him. Chris Conover, with her large-scale, intricately detailed illustrations, has outdone herself.
Review: Young Prince Leo II, a winged lion, grows up in his father's opulent palace with every luxury--ruby roses, silver rattles, trunks full of gold--but no books. Leo Golden Mane, Emperor of the Cats, had no need for books: "The emperor couldn't read or write, not even his own name, but he didn't care. When he roared, everyone jumped."
So imagine young Leo's surprise when he tries out his special blue-green wings and winds up not only in the paws of King Otto of the North, but in a huge library full of something he's never seen--books! Otto was rumored to have magnificent treasures lining his walls. But Leo soon discovers just how fantastic Otto's wealth truly is, when the avuncular bear opens up a storybook and begins to read aloud. When Leo wakes up the next day, his first words are "Please read me another story." It takes Leo a while to regain his strength and fly back home, but he learns to read... a skill that not only opens up his world but ends up forging an alliance between King Otto's kingdom and his father's.
Chris Conover, author and illustrator of many wonderful picture books, including Froggie Went A-Courting, creates magnificent illustrations to accompany this whimsical fairy tale about the power of reading. Young readers will want to spend hours poring over every regal detail. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
