A Lion In The Meadow by Margaret Mahy
A Lion In The Meadow is one of Margaret Mahy’s best-loved creations. This is a tale about the nature of stories and imagination and where the line between them and reality can blur, especially in the mind of a child.
A little boy is worried that he has seen a lion lurking in the meadow outside the house. Its description and fierceness grows the more the little boy’s tries to get his mother’s attention. His mother ignores his concerns, until, exhausted, she seeks to counter by telling the boy a tale of her own. But that has unexpected results…
A Lion In The Meadow is a paperback story for reading to small children or for older children to read alone.
