Do Lions Live on Lily Pads?

Absurd nonsense books are particular favourites at Maybe Towers - the crazier the better, and with a notion like lions living in the middle of ponds on lily pads, Melanie Walsh's toddler-friendly book is a fun read. 

Each animal is boldly and brightly illustrated and though this book was a bit 'young' for a three year old, it would've taken a stronger will than mine to prise it out of Charlotte's grasp once she found it in the library. So we booked it out and it was a nice short book (those of you who, like me, end up reading 3 or 4 books to your children at bedtimes are extremely grateful for short books!)

Entertaining stuff though Charlotte was a bit baffled that the lion in the title isn't actually in the book after all!

Charlotte's best bit - The bear

Daddy's favourite bit - Great colourful pics that are very kid friendly
