When a lion wanders into a library, no one knows what to do. Since there aren't any rules about lions in the library, Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, says he can stay. There is one hiccup when he roars sadly at the close of storytime, but he promises to be good from then on. This New York Times bestselling picture book has quickly become a classic. You'll fall in love with this cuddly library lion who wants with all his heart to follow the rules so he can stay at the library.
