This fun romp examines what it might be like for a young boy to apprentice himself to an actual lion in order to mimic and master ferocious lion behavior. In the opening pages, the boy walks past shop windows advertising karate, Spanish, violin, yoga, and knitting lessons, which will feel both familiar and amusing to contemporary kids enrolled in a host of extracurricular classes. There's some actual information about lion behavior that goes down easily in the offbeat format, and lots of signs and posters in the print-rich art can help inspire kids to learn to read.

Author-illustrator Jon Agee is a pro, seasoned and silly, and this book is perfect for those who like their animal information delivered with a demented dash of fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
