"A lazy lion goes against his real nature by tricking other animals so he can get some food without hunting. Will the lion get away with his plot? Find out in this beautifully illustrated story."
"Mpho Otukile comes from Botswana, in the southern part of Africa, where she grew up listening to stories told by the village elders at night while sitting around an open fire. As much as she was entertained, these stories also instilled some moral lessons about life.
The author now lives in Winnipeg, Canada and is writing these stories to pass them to her daughter and other children."
The Lion's Deceit is a fantastic book for young children. It teaches kids to be honest, because your lie will get found out and people will not like you for it. The book also teaches about staying true to yourself and not trying to be someone else because it seems easier that way. Going against one's nature is never good, and in the end you will have to be yourself to survive.
I really enjoyed reading The Lion's Deceit, and my kids enjoyed it too. It's short enough to keep their attention, and the illustrations are colorful and engaging. The twins LOVE animals of all types, so they have fun pointing at all of the animals that visit the lion and naming each one.
