Andy and the Lion - an oldie but a goodie
Andy and the Lion (Picture Puffins) - James Daugherty
I remember reading this story at my grandmother’s house when I was little. I was thrilled to see this novel at a sale at the library so I quickly grabbed it, paid my dollar and now it is added to my own library.
 
I didn’t even have to open the novel to remember anything about the book. I remembered Andy and the lion chasing each other around the huge rock. Andy was scared of the lion and then suddenly the lion stopped running. I thought for sure he would eat poor Andy and then the lion showed Andy his paw. A huge thorn stuck out of his paw and smart Andy dressed in his overalls grabbed out his pliers and pulled with all of his might and got that thorn out. The thorn was so stuck in the lion’s paw that the two of them tumbled over backward when it finally came out. The lion was so grateful that he licked Andy right in the face. The two of them then, went back to what they were originally doing. I loved that part of the story.
 
Days later, as Andy was visiting the circus, a lion jumped out of his steel cage and ran right toward the crowd. The lion was headed right toward Andy who had been excited for this part of the show. As the lion looked at Andy, Andy noticed something familiar about his lion. The lion stopped in his tracks and looked straight at Andy. It’s funny how things turned out in the rest of the book.
 
I liked how the author leaves you hanging with the short script. Sometimes there’s not a lot of words on one page and you need to read two pages to get a complete sentence as the author creates a cliffhanging effect on the pages. I liked the white, black and orange color scheme and I like the magical elements of this children’s novel. Andy begins the novel going to the library to get a novel, a novel about lions. A picture of a lion faces his dining room table, his father is reading the newspaper article about lions, his grandfather’s story is about lions, and then Andy dreams about lions, lions are everywhere before he runs into the lion on his way to school. I can’t wait to share this novel with others. 4.5 stars

Reading progress update: I've read 140 out of 327 pages.
Little & Lion - Brandy Colbert

The flu fairy has visited. Jake brought it home. He's had a fever all weekend. I had a sore throat that kept me up all last night. So we kept Jake home from school today and his daddy took him to urgent care. Yep, the flu. And they want me to come in too since I now have a fever, sore throat, and aches. The flu is apparently so bad this year Oklahoma Department of Health has made it mandatory for kids to stay home 5 days if they come down with this bug. We are officially under quarantine. 

 

I'm rolling over and going back to sleep. As much as I want to read, I am so tired.

Oh, no....Lion, sweetie, no. I get the feeling we are in for a All the Bright Places sort of ending.
