4.75 / 7.0

I was immediately drawn in by this book’s bold text and illustrative style, and I wasn’t disappointed. The story is silly and fun, sure to delight young children who can imagine having a lion for a pet. The text is concise as well, which makes this a great book for reading aloud–maybe even at bath time!

Who Illustrated When Your Lion Needs a Bath

illustrator
Daniel Wiseman

Daniel Wiseman likes to draw. A lot. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful son. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly in his car, riding his bike on the mean streets of STL, or napping.
