Willoughby & the Lion by Greg Foley

Willoughby & the Lion
by Greg Foley
Picture Book

One day a boy finds a lion in the backyard of his house. The lion grants the boy ten wishes but tells the boy that he must wish for the most wonderful thing of all or he will be stuck on the rock forever. The boy wishes for elaborate things such as a bigger house, a roller coaster, and the fastest shoes in the world. The boy forgets to wish for something wonderful until he is on his last wish. You’ll have to read the book to find out if the boy manages to find out what the right wish is.

I really enjoyed the illustrations of this book. The embossed gold cover is eye catching and gives the reader a glimpse of what is to come. The illustrations consisted only of black and gold and were stunning. The gold was shiny, eye popping, and beautiful. This is the first picture book in a series.
