LAZY LION by Mwenye Hadithi


Email this review


Another entertaining, brilliantly illustrated ""why"" story from the creators of Hot Hippo (1986) and other modern fables. Lion orders each of several animals--ants. weaver birds, honey badger, etc.--to build him a house, but every house is more satisfactory for its builder than for him; when the rain comes, he must live and endure in the open--as he still does. Hadithi's well-honed cadence and Kennaway's sly humor, bold forms, and striking use of rich color should make this a storytelling favorite.
