Leído: Library Lion de Michelle Knudsen (Author), Kevin Hawkes (Illustrator)

Library Lion - Michelle Knudsen, Kevin Hawkes. New York: Candlewick, 2009. 48 p.

Iba detrás de este cuento infantil desde hace casi 5 años, y el otro día casualmente lo encontré, y en inglés, bien¡¡¡¡¡

El cuento explica la historia de un león que se convierte en un superusuario de una biblioteca, y a pesar del desagrado del ayudante de biblioteca, se convierte en una pieza clave de la biblioteca, y cómo al final se convierten en amigos.
Una bonita historia de amistad ambientada en una biblioteca pública de EEUU.

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.
