    1. This book is an example of one that I bought for myself, before I was a mommy and before I was a children's librarian. About ten years ago I was intrigued by the wave of retro-looking illustrations that began to hit the bookstores, so I picked up this book that has older-looking illustrations, because it is an older story. Having said that, this book should not be dismissed as only having reference value for those wanting to create retro-looking illustrations. The illustrations do propel the sto [...]

    2. I was surprised this picture book was written/illustrated in 1931. The illustrations---which are cute and lively---have a slightly vintage/retro, yet modern feel to them. The story is fanciful, but does have an underlying message of truly caring for the family pet. I loved pretty much everything about this book and recommend it most particularly to the 2-6 year olds who like stories about animals (just be prepared to tell them over and over that no, they can't have a pet lion).

    3. This story is really corny, but I am cutting it a lot of slack because it dates from 1931. Basically girl receives lion from mom as a present. (Yes, this girl is spoiled.) The lion grows up and is to big to keep. So the whole family and the lion move to the countryside where life is much better!I love the pictures. They are charming in a quaint, old-fashioned 1931-ish way.

    4. Be still my heart. This book, circa 1931, has a sweet enough story, but the dual-toned illustrations--simple and oh so charming--had me drooling.For whatever reason, it gets me. I want this book!

    5. Sally is a little girl that wanted a lion so badly. Her parents get her a lion cub that soon is too large to stay in the city so they send him to their ranch in the mountains. Sally and Herbert were sad without each other.

    6. I LOVED this book when I was little. Even if it filled me with the unattainable dream of having a pet lion.

    7. I like how the girl gets a lion. They grow up together and have no problems. They move to the ranch so that they can stay together.
