Mary Esparza-Vela’s children’s book entitled, There’s A Lion in the House along with Jack Foster’s hysterical illustrated cover immediately made my mind race as to what the author had in store for her readers. Hooked from the onset I immediately opened the book.
The youngest of four rabbit brothers, Robby, was the silliest of the bunch. Always the jokester, Robby thrived on teasing his siblings every chance he got with good old-fashioned pranks. Will the mention of the lion that almost ate their Grandpa in the woods one day make his imagination run wild or did the lion actually find it’s way into their home one evening. What is Robby to do when he hears loud roars during the night from within their house and when he tries to tell his brother’s each of them ignores him? Will Robby be brave and search where the noise is coming from or will he hide under his blankets?
Mary Esparza-Vela’s There’s A Lion in the House is a delightful tale of sibling antics that will have the reader laughing out loud throughout the story. Ms. Esparza-Vela’s expert storytelling will make There’s A Lion in the House a cherished book for years to come and I’m sure will be worn around the edges from the constant reading.
Jack Foster’s brilliant and hilarious illustrations enhance Ms. Esparza-Vela’s story to the highest level of enjoyment for both children and parents.
