A girl conjures up an imaginary companion -- a lion -- who will join her on the long walk home from school. He will help her to pick up her baby brother from daycare and shop at the store (which has cut off the family's credit), and he'll keep her company all along the way until she is safely home. He will always come back when she needs him, unlike her father whom she sees only in a photograph -- a photograph in which he clearly resembles a lion.

A very deep and tender story about a tremendous loss in life and the courage to carry on despite daily hardships. The first few pages feel delightful, but as the story unfolds and reveals the bitter core of the story, it stresses your nerve and takes away your smile. The last page with no text simply gives an emotional punch on your face and very likely would make you cry (I did.).

But it is a master piece. Kudos to the author and the illustrator.

I love this book! Books like this are important. Life saving. Many children live in this unreal reality. Many children need a lion to walk them home.

It's a beautiful, compassionate story, and the illustrations are gorgeous.
