Book Description

1 Sep 2007
In Clare Beaton's newest tribute to the animal kingdom, a crowd of colourful creatures runs riot through the jungle. But none can compete with the tremendous ROAR of a lion! In her signature felt style, Beaton creates exquisite scenes filled with exotic jungle flora and fauna, including green beaded chameleons and a leopard sporting spots made of sequins. This entertaining extravaganza is a feast for the eyes and the ears!

Product Description


'Here are some collage pictures that should prompt a discussion about materials and methods with children.' --Nursery World

'Clare Beaton has produced another of her attractive fabric collages in How Loud is a Lion? with a simple text by Tessa Blackstone. All the jungle animals parade in ingeniously designed spreads, building up to the appearance of the lion.' --Bookseller

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer?s A Child's Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck's translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance. Clare Beaton worked at the BBC for eight years, illustrating on many children's television programmes. She is now highly sought-after creator of handcrafted children's picture books. Clare has had nearly fifty books published, including One Moose, Twenty Mice (Barefoot Books, 1998) and Mother Goose Remembers (Barefoot Books, 2000), both of which have attracted considerable praise.

5.0 out of 5 stars RRRROOOOAAARRRR! 12 Feb 2009

Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My 11 month old loves this and has started roaring at the right place in the book! I love all Clare Beaton's books, and I think this one has some of her most complex compositions. Lovely mixture of African print fabrics, felt and haberdashery bits and pieces. The animals are instantly recognisable and babies seem to love the pictures!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 6 Jan 2013
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
I got this book from the library for my 3 month old daughter and we loved it so much we bought our own copy. She loves the big bold pictures in the book and smiles her little head off at the cheetah especially. It's a lovely rhyming story and introduces some well known and lesser know animals to the child. I think this book will be a favourite for years to come. It will also be great for toddlers as there's a sneaky peek of the lion on every page for them to try and find and they'll love the loud surprise at the end.

We purchased how loud is a lion after enjoying 'How big is a pig'. My 18 mth old gets very excited looking for the lion on each page and loves 'roaring' along with the story!
