A Lion in Paris 一只狮子在巴黎 by Beatrice Alemagna
We heart france!
Translated from a french story "Un lion à Paris" and widely regarded as the most accomplished book by multi-award-winning children’s author/illustrator Beatrice Alemagna.
This BIG book tells the story of a lion who, bored by his rural life in the savanna, seeks excitement and opportunity in the City of Light. Upon arriving in Paris, the lion is disappointed to find that despite his size, people barely pay attention to him, not even when he lets out a ferocious roar on the busy underground Métro.
Revealing the sights and sounds of Paris from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, this beautifully illustrated book successfully conveys the experience of being a stranger in a new city and the process of understanding one’s own identity.
