6.5 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are gorgeously rich and detailed and add reality to this story of imagination and conquering fears. Richard’s lion (Lionheart) was reminiscent of Aslan (of The Chronicles of Narnia) to me in his protection and empowerment of the little boy in facing his own fears, which made the story even more powerful and meaningful to me personally. This was my son’s bedtime book of choice every night for at least 6 months and none of us ever got tired of it!

Sweet story about being brave like a lion, and I think this would be a great book for any little ones that are afraid of monsters. I love how magical the illustrations look!

Who Wrote Lionheart

author & illustrator
Richard Collingridge

At about the age of five Richard noticed that real people didn’t look like a bunch of sticks with a circle on the top. But to his amazement, no one else in his classroom, including the teachers, seemed to be able to see this. So with this secret in mind, he decided that when he grew up, he wanted to draw pictures for a living. Richard moved to Paris after graduating with a BA Hons degree in 2008. His debut picture book When it Snows was shortlisted for the V&A Best Illustrated Book Award and nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal. His follow up picture book Lionheart and his illustrations for Blackberry Blue were shortlisted for the UKLA Book Award and also nominated for the Kate Greenaway.
