Chloe and the Lion

Chloe and the Lion is a nominee for the 13-14 South Carolina Picture Book Award.

Chloe and the Lion is not your ordinary children’s picture book. This laugh-out-loud romp is probably more fun for adult readers than it is for kids. (Even the “about the author” section on the back flap is funny.) The book invites readers into the world of actually creating a story and the many ups and downs, twists and turns that may go with it.

Author Mac Barnett and illustrator Adam Rex have created something truly spectacular in this book. The words and pictures–though often at war (in a hilarious way, of course)–mesh together seamlessly, and the entire book will keep readers of all ages engaged. I loved it and plan to give it as a gift to several people in my family and school.

Chloe and the Lion is a welcome addition to any library!
