Overview

Tawny Scrawny Lion by Kathryn Jackson

One of the bestselling Little Golden Books of all time.
 
Once there was a tawny scrawny lion who chased monkeys on Monday—kangaroos on Tuesday—zebras on Wednesday—bears on Thursday—camels on Friday—and on Saturday, elephants!

So begins the classic story of a family of ten fat rabbits that teaches the hungry lion to eat carrot stew—so that he doesn’t eat them.

The tawny scrawny lion spends his days chasing animals in the area, but he never catches them. Then he makes friends with a rabbit who tries to teach him to fish and makes friends with him. The rabbit and other friends tell him he is skinny and feed him soup. Then they tickle the lion, and take a nap. Nice story about being friends with others who need help. Cute illustrations too!

I was very sensitive as a child.  The idea of one animal eating another animal bothered me.  So, as a consequence, despite the fantastic artwork, I did not really like this book. Fast-forward thirty or so years and I'm working as a children's librarian.  For some reason, our department decided to turn this book into a puppet show.  I'm working on the "screenplay" for the puppet show, and I suddenly realize how funny this book actually is.  My newly-five-year-old son has a very strong and and strange sense of humor.  He also is drawn to beautiful artwork.  He, of course, loves this book.

A lovely story - frequently requested by our two year old - despite lack of interactive features, it still remains popular. Love the bunny!

It does not stand out as much as most Golden books. The story is okay, I would have given a 3.5 but you can't do half stars.
