2007 Award
Library Lion
( by Michelle Knudsen/illus. by Kevin Hawkes, Candlewick $15.99 Score: ) A very satisfying story of a lion who comes inside the library and becomes a rule-abiding patron. But one day, when the librarian takes a tumble, Lion has the good sense to break the rules. A big idea for kids to grapple with—knowing right from wrong, and when an absolute is not so absolute. Hawkes’s illustrations give this an old-fashioned “Robert McCloskey” look that fits the story. 4–7.
