Lionel and the Lion’s Share


Lionel the lion ALWAYS gets the lion’s share . . . until his friends decide that enough is enough!

Lionel the lion does NOT like to share. He buys all the best instruments from the music shop, all the smartest hats from the hat shop and all the brightest balloons from the balloon stall. But at Chloe’s birthday party, Lionel goes too far . . . and eats ALL the cake. That’s when Lionel’s friends decide that something has to be done . . .

A simple story full of fun, exploring themes of friendship and the importance of sharing. The temptation to grab, snatch and keep all the best things for yourself feels very real indeed, and this cautionary tale, full of emotion, will ring true for children and grown-ups alike!

Lou Peacock’s inventive language is a true delight to read aloud, and illustrator Lisa Sheehan fills every page of the story with appealing animal characters that children will love.

Take a look inside

“Lou Peacock’s lively, pertinent tale hinges on a very clever last-line pay-off and is wonderfully illustrated by Lisa Sheehan with pastel shades, scribbly textures and Richard Scarry-esque anthropomorphic caricature.”

“Critique of unbridled capitalism? Maybe. Sprightly fable with a moral? Definitely. The illustrations are a huge bonus, and not of the banker kind, either.”
