Love: The Lion by Frederic Brremaud

Love and life in the jungle is not an easy thing.  Mr. Breemaud tells you story of an animal without any words.  The illustrations make the story speak to you.

Magnetic Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this graphic novel for review (thank you).  It will be published July 12th.  There are early novels in this series you can catch up while you wait for this issue.

The story begins with a young lion and his family.  His father bosses everyone in the family around and he has no patience for his son.  As the lion grows, so does his hunting ability.  Soon he has a family of his own.

You see all the animals of the jungle and the plains in this story and learn how they are inter-related.  Sometimes the victims kill their predators.  Or a bigger predator might kill a smaller one.  The cats are fearless.

This story shows the cycle of life and it's a bit sad at the end.  Of course, so is life in the human world.  

These books are worth reading just so you get to see the luscious illustrations.  They draw you in...
