"We've just been running the gamut of emotions from sorrow to joy - and reading the words - with your lovely HOME SWEET HOME - our bedtime story for tonight and tomorrow.

So, on behalf of Nico, Kalika, Jak,and me, thank you, Caroline."

Time of the Lion

Time of the Lion is published by Frances Lincoln and is illustrated gorgeously by Jackie Morris. It had a rave five-star review in Books for Keeps, and was shortlisted for the English Association's 4-11 Best Picture Book Award 1998.

Powerful and subtly resonant (Helen Dunmore)

The Time of the Lion was a book I enjoyed immensely and would encourage anyone to share with their children. The illustrations are exceptional - the colours and decorative effects encapsulate the whole African theme of the story and would be ideal as a stimulus for story writing or character profiles - a wonderful multicultural resource with an extremely positive image of an alternative way of. life
The moral tone of the story and careful way in which it deals with environmental issues would provide an excellent source for discussion.
The language and vocabulary used lends itself superbly to activities on descriptive writing and enlarged extracts would suit this purpose extremely well during shared reading sessions.
A stimulating and beautiful book for all ages!
(K. Keane Y2 Class teacher from English 4-11 by the English Association)
