Summary
Compassion is a force mightier than stone. 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. This heart-warming and inspiring tale by international favourite Magaret Wild, with stunning Depression-era illustrations by Ritva Voutila, demonstrates the power of kindness and its profound ability to change lives
Summary
A lion statue rethinks his dreams of playing and running through the park as a real lion when a baby is abandoned at his paw
