About the Author
Born in the west country, Jim now lives in London and works in the licensing industry. He has written several picture books, including the award winning Letterbox Lil and Stripy Horse series. In his spare time Jim loves to grow vegetables and this gave him the idea for a seriously splatty story: Oh No, Monster Tomato!

A young girl called Caro moves with her mum to a new house in a new town and is lonely because she doesn’t know anyone. That is until the mysterious Snow Lion appears in her home and the two become firm friends.
This book has a truly timeless feel to it both in the narrative and the artwork. Richard Jones has a very naturalistic illustration style and beautifully captures the innocence and charm of Jim Helmores sweet story.
This is a tale that I’m sure a lot of children -and adults- will relate too. The scariness of change and having to make new friends is a universally felt challenge. The confidence Caro needs to approach this problem manifests itself in the beautiful imaginary Lion. The symbolic decorating of the house is really nicely handled and the very last page absolutely floored me.
This book cuddles you, wraps you in a blanket and makes you a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows floating on the top. It then totally wow’s you with its sheer imagination and utter brilliance.
Life is full of challenges - maybe we all need a Snow Lion in our lives to remind us of this every now and again. This book deserves to be on bedtime and library bookshelves everywhere.
