KIRKUS REVIEW

The most lovable characteristics are attributed to this warmhearted lion family in an enchanting tale of a lion who finally makes peace with his ""lionhood"". Little Leo was tired of being a lion, tired of lion roars and lion claws, and despite mother's loving reassurance he goes out in search of a new identity. But for all the reasons that animals differ, he finds he cannot be a giraffe, a monkey, an elephant or even a toad. What utter perfection then to have combined his dream with his reality in the discovery that the two most desirable creatures in the pool were the reflections of himself and his beautiful mother.
