Bedtime Story: Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen

Synopsis: "An affectionate storybook tribute to that truly wonderful place: the library.

Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how. Michelle Knudsen's disarming story, illustrated by the matchless Kevin Hawkes in an expressive timeless style, will win over even the most ardent of rule keepers."

My Review: I really enjoyed this book, the lightness of the illustrations and the message of the story, everything fit so well together. After so many books about do what your parents tell you, follow the rules, etc. it is nice to see a book making it clear that sometimes to help someone the rules need to be broken and that's okay. This book was a little advanced for my Munchkin but I am looking forward to when he is old enough to enjoy it, I just hope there are still books in the library by that point!
My Rating: This was a very cute book and I loved the almost vintage feel to the illustrations. I hope Munchkin will love it eventually, we really need to find a good library since we have more books than our local one.  I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
