Illustrator: Beatrice Alemagna
A Lion in Paris is translated from French. A big, lonely, orange lion travels from his home in the grasslands to Paris “to find a job, love and a future.” He explores the city but disappointedly no one notices him. “More than anything, the lion liked to be noticed and he thought it was very sad to be ignored.”
Initially, he is not keen on the city but the more he explores the more it grows on him. “The city that had appeared so weary and frightening and grey in the morning now seemed to be smiling at him with all its windows.”
