Product description

A hilarious tale about a a boy with a wild imagination and his loving family, from award-winning author, Swapna Haddow and bestselling artist, Dapo Adeola.

Is Mum a lioness? She loves her ‘cubs’, she can run faster than anything, and she can catch you in a single pounce for cuddles and kisses. She always makes sure you can hear her incredibly loud, proud roar when you’re playing football. What else could Mum be but a lioness?

She’s always pawing your hair, along with the rest of the pride of lionesses. But sometimes, especially when her young ones are upset or scared, a lovely, warm, protective lioness embrace is just what is needed.

My Mum is a Lioness is the brilliantly funny follow-up to My Dad is a Grizzly Bear. Created by Swapna Haddow, author of the Dave Pigeon series, and Dapo Adeola, illustrator of Look Up!
