THE LION AND THE BIRD -- a story about the true heart of friendship, and the bittersweet sweep of time
The Lion and the Bird by Marianne Dubuc (2014, Enchanted Lion Books; 64 pages)
The Lion and the Bird -- one of the best books I've read in the past year -- is an ode to friendship, loneliness, and kindness. This book contains not only fantastic, magical illustrations, but also a storyline built around a rare friendship that follows the bittersweet passing of time and seasons. There is a kind lion and an injured bird. There are wordless pages that tell the story through exquisite details in the illustrations that help to create a gentle pace, because sometimes words are truly not necessary, and what is necessary is to look at the world in silence and open your heart to the unknown. Everyone should read this book once or twice in their lives.
