Vernon the Vegetarian Lion by John Hughson

Vernon is a lion cub who is tired of eating meat.  His parents can't understand why, but Vernon takes off to find his own food...

Publishing Push and the author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

The little cub is not the sharpest crayon in the box.  He begins by trying to eat the seeds a mouse does, but he can't even pick up the seeds!  Then he tries to sink the water with a hippo and eat the greens at the bottom but he runs out of breath.  Even when the giraffe tries to share his treetop leaves, it doesn't work.

He goes home defeated.  But his parents tell him learning from other animals is important.  Even better, Mom gives him some veggies.  Everyone has his/her own style, Vernon has found his.  Have you found yours yet?
