    One day Oscar wakes up, and his parents are gone. There is a massive lion lying on their bed instead. Clearly, the lion must have eaten them, but he won’t be hungry again for a few days, so he can easily look after Oscar in the meantime. And so their adventure begins … From the unforgettable visits to local museums to an unscheduled meet up with the local bully, there isn’t a dull moment for Oscar and lion. But there must be more to this than meets the eye … A beautiful read about family and grief, suitable for any 7 – 9 year olds, especially to be read out loud together at bedtime. Highly recommended!
