There's A Lion In The House

Mary Esparza-Vela is the author of the picture book, There's A Lion In The House.

It's a cute one, and the illustrations by Jack Foster capture the feeling of the text perfectly.

The story is about Robby, a rabbit who likes to tease - and maybe scare - his brothers. But he learns about something really scary - A Lion!

That night he hears a lion roaring right inside his house. What can Robby do?

He tries to wake his brothers, but they're no help. Finally he goes to his parents' bedroom and discovers the roar he thought was a lion is really the sound of his father snoring. Having spent years with a snoring husband, I can certainly identify. ;-)

I don't usually give away the ending of books I review, but this book is for kids who are much too young to read this post. It would make a great bedtime story for them.
