Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Danny was very mad because he wanted sausages and raspberry juice, but there were only green beans and potatoes. Danny the Lion was hungry! So he put on his lion suit, lashed his little tail and went prowling around the neighborhood for something good to eat. Although he starts out angry, each person he meets asks him for help in some way, making him feel friendlier and friendlier. Finally he gets invited over another little boy's house for sausages and raspberry juice, bringing the day to a satisfying close. The illustrations accompanying this story are charming, evoking a small European town and it's cheerful, comely inhabitants. A tiny stuffed animal lion hangs around with Danny, and his expressions are adorable. The text feels a little formal at first, but once you know that it is a translation, the rhythm makes perfect sense. Solid plot, engaging illustration and a little cultural contrast will make this a welcome addition to the American market. 2000, North-South Books, $15.95 and $15.88. Ages 3 to 6. Reviewer: Nancy Partridge
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-There are no sausages or raspberry juice in the house, and Danny is furious. Accompanied by an animated toy lion, the grouchy boy leaves home to prowl the neighborhood in a lion costume, planning to take out his anger on strangers. Instead of attacking, however, he finds himself assisting a bicyclist and a newspaper lady, and then befriending a boy with plenty of toys but no companions. Back home, Danny sheds his lion skin at the gate and whistles happily to his door. As in Andrew's Angry Words (North-South, 1995), Lachner again empathizes with youngsters' common frustrations. The dialogue is brief and realistic, creatively incorporating growls and vivid metaphors. Gusti's ink-and-watercolor illustrations fluidly evoke Danny's journey. Full-page scenes and opposing keyhole glimpses present everything from untied sneakers to a sparrow bathing in a puddle. Readers will relate to the young protagonist's emotions and appreciate the humor.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
