The Books

The Lion and the Bird

by Marianne Dubuc

One Potato Review

This story is familiar, its impact maybe not. Some of this has to do with Dubuc’s typically tranquil illustration, and some with unspokenness, atypical for American interpretations of the genre. What is it between this agrarian king of the plains and the injured bird left behind by its flock? They’re not saying, indeed the value they attach to one another’s company is just mysterious enough to keep you wondering if the bird, once recovered, will return. A book in four seasons, every one irresistible.
