The Very Hungry Lion by Gita Wolf
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A Charming Folk Tale For Every Child And Parent To Cherish; Winner of the Alucin Citation First Prize in the Children's Book Category, this gorgeous, colour adaptation of a traditional folk tale is silk-screened by hand on thick, high quality handmade paper. Rendered in the Warli style of folk painting from western India, usually found on the walls of tribal houses, this book tells the tale of Singam, a lazy lion who would rather trick other animals than hunt for his food. But Singam discovers after a long and exciting day that finding a meal may not be that easy - since all the other animals in the village are just as tricky he is. Vibrant and humorous, this classic tale will make a treasured addition to any child's library.
