Author: Marianne Dubuc

Publisher: Book Island (2015)
ISBN: 9780994109873
Translated from French. Dubuc’s limited text story tells of a lion who discovers an injured bird flying home for the winter. The thoughtful lion realises the bird is all alone so nurses it back to health. During the bird’s recovery, the two become close friends, spending time ice fishing, sledging and by the warm fire. As Spring arrives the bird leaves the lion to return to its family now flying north. The lion continues on with its life, wondering what the bird is doing. As Autumn comes around again, the lion hears the familiar sound of the bird stopping for a visit before heading south.
