Little Lion wants to play, but everyone else on the savannah has gone to sleep! Will the mischievous cub find anyone to play with before Mama says it's bedtime? (New paperback edition) AGES: 0 to 3 AUTHOR: Constanze V. Kitzing has wanted to be a children's book illustrator from the age of 6. After years of study and a stint at a weekly news magazine, she made the leap to completely devote her time to following her dreams. Now, her books have been published in more than 14 countries, and looks to her two small children for inspiration. She lives with her family in Cologne, Germany. SELLING POINTS: * One of three simple, humorous books featuring a gender-neutral main character, Little Lion, and a host of other fun sub-Saharan African animals. * Sleeping animals throughout the hand-painted illustrations and Little Lion's eventual surrender to sleep at the end present small children with a charming transition from day to night. * The predictable text pattern is designed to develop early literacy skills and build beginning readers' confidence.
