The Night Lion
Sanne Dufft, Pajama Press (FEBRUARY) Hardcover $15.95 (32pp), 978-1-77278-041-3
Armed with a wooden sword for feeling strong and a hat for feeling tall, Morgan loves seeking adventure in the woods until a nightmare leaves him feeling scared and unsure. Luckily, the arrival of a stuffed lion is the perfect remedy and makes him brave. Creative illustrations use light and shadow to explore tumultuous emotions as the lion chases fears away alongside Morgan— clad in blue polka-dot pajamas, a red feather in his cap, his sword held high.
