A Lion in the Meadow (Picture Puffin)

A Lion In The Meadow (Picture Puffin) - Margaret Mahy A 1001 CBYMRBYGU. A common theme I see in books for young children is parents who do not listen to their children. That’s the theme of this book. The little boy tells his mom that he sees a lion in the meadow, but his mother dismisses him. The pictures show the mother carrying on with her daily chores while the boy continues to move closer and closer to the lion. Eventually, the mother seeks to counter by telling the boy a tale of her own, but that has unexpected results.The little boy said,“Mother, there is a big, yellow lion in the meadow.”The mother said,“Nonsense, little boy.”
