Description from the publisher:

A good-natured lion sees his reflection in a pool and gasps at the fierce creature staring back at him and is too frightened to drink. Children will learn through the lion how to deal positively with fears and inhibitions that so often arise from situations they as yet may not understand. Idries Shah’s collections of Eastern oral and written literature have established the Sufi teaching-story as an educational instrument. The original version of this story was told by the 13th Century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi. I remember this story helping me overcome my fear as a child. —Saira Shah, Journalist. Her documentary films on Afghanistan, Beneath the Veil and Unholy War aired on CNN. Ingrid Rodriguez has illustrated this tale, bringing the animals to life with warmth and humor. Her illustrations are full of incidental and small details that make her style distinctive. Rodriguez’s illustrations are expansive, jovial, and colorful. —School Library Journal Selected by Michigan Department of Education as part of their statewide R.E.A.D.Y. (Read, Educate and Develop Youth), program designed to make sure children have the necessary pre-reading skills (language, vocabulary, alphabet) by the time they enter school. R.E.A.D.Y. is part of an award-winning and innovative reading plan launched in 1998 by Governor John Engler that is designed to help every student in the state read by the end of third grade.
