Very Hungry Lion by Gita Wolf, Indrapramit Roy

Winner of the Alcuin Citation for Excellence in Book Design

"If tasty food has been called toothsome, then by extension, this tale of folk wisdom is handsome, for it is an extremely pleasant book to hold and page through."-Kirkus Reviews

This award-winning handcrafted picture book is an adaptation of a traditional Indian folk tale about a hungry but lazy lion who would rather trick other animals than hunt for his food. The vibrant and humorous art is rendered in the Warli style of folk painting from western India, usually found on the walls of tribal houses. Illustrations and text in this handcrafted edition are silk-screened by hand onto handmade rice paper from India.
