5.0 out of 5 stars Great kids picture book 16 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is fun and well illustrated. I bought it for a dear friend of mine who is 4 and a half. It's been read at bedtime multiple times--the grown-ups like it. Bill Peet has a great sense of humour and a nice touch with a coloured pencil. I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eternal favourite 27 Feb 2010
By Kate P
Format:Paperback
The copy of this book which I read to my young children is now falling apart from what must be hundreds of readings. I dug it out of the loft and am now reading it to their children, who were completely captivated, so another copy is now a definite necessity!

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Bill Peet and still my favorite. 13 May 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Some people have said this may be too long, but kids today are used to quick and dirty. My bet is most kids will happily sit for this rhythmical tale. It has kept my five children's attention at every sitting. It was so popular with my younger brother that he memorized it years ago and now recites it to his son. Peet's illustrations are the perfect compliment to this humorous story. (You may recognize his style - he was an illustrator for Disney.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Peet�s First Book is Excellent! 26 April 2001
By M. Allen Greenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First published in 1959, this is one of more than 30 books written by the great Bill Peet. In it, a proud young lion loses his hair in an accident, and his animal friends come out to solve his problem. An elephant remembers a cure (crocodile tears), but no animal is brave enough to collect them except the clever elephant. However, the croc tonic works so too well, and a baboon is dispatched to trim the overgrown mane. The resulting haircut is a tribute to nonconformity:
"You can search every jungle, each circus and zoo, From San Francisco to Timbuctoo But I doubt that you'll find though you look everywhere A lion whose main is so perfectly square ............So there!"
The rhymes are delightful and the pictures are fun, relaxed, and absorbing! Peet worked as an illustrator, scriptwriter, and producer for Walt Disney, so you may see some Disney-esque touches in the expressive animal drawings. It's a great children's book (38 pages long). Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars So good... I memorized it... Really! 28 May 2004
By Richard A Garriott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an amazing book. When I was born in England, this book was bought for my older brothers entertainment, then in my time I read it, then my younger sister as well. As we grew up, we each retained the ability to recite bits and pieces of the now familiar tome. In that it was so special to each of us, we all tried to lay some claim to ownership of the one original. So, I went and memorized it, and was granted the original by my siblings. Now I buy this book by the case, and give it out to raptured children (and adults) after recitations. This book never fails to amaze everyone whose been exposed to it! Too bad its so regularly out of print. Like right now which is why I'm writing this!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Story For Children 28 Jun 2000
By Paul Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Not Bill Peet's best work, but stil a good story. Hubert the Lion experiences a downfall when he loses his beautiful mane and is forced into hiding.
A chivalrous elephant comes to his rescue by setting out on a difficult journey to retrieve the hair tonic that the Lion needs.
But the fun just begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book is fun to read for both kids and adults 24 Oct 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Turtleback
This was one of Bill Peet's first books. I read it as a child and then to my kids. The story is fun, a bit long for one sitting. Rhymes are clever and pictures entertaining.
