The Stone Lion
By Margaret Wild
Illustrated by Ritva Voutila
For ages 5–9
Sometimes statues are granted a chance to become warm, breathing creatures.
The stone lion has only one dream – to run, pounce and leap in the park across from where he sits.
But one snowy night, when a baby is abandoned at his paws, he is compelled to think differently.
