“Inspirational, uplifting and an utter delight. Roar Like a Lion will give pleasure and confidence to all animals who read it, both young and old. A great family book to read together.”M.G. LEONARD, AUTHOR OF THE BEETLE BOY SERIES

“Roar Like a Lion is just a joy – a book that’s both empowering and entertaining. Carlie Sorosiak starts with a simple idea – if animals could talk, what advice would they give us? – and develops this with her trademark wisdom, warm-heartedness and humour into a book that honestly makes me smile every time I think of it. Katie Walker’s stylish artwork complements the text perfectly and helps make this a very special book which we couldn’t be more proud to publish.”—Liz Cross, DFB Publishing Director
A note on sources from the author: When I set out to write Roar, I was particularly inspired by Peter Wohlleben’s The Inner Life of Animals. It’s an excellent book, and you should definitely check it out if interested! In Roar, the phrase “survival of the friendliest” is also a book title by anthropologist Brian Hare and writer Vanessa Woods. If you’d like to read any of the sources from Roar, a handy set of links is available below. Please note that some of the sources might not be appropriate for all ages. Thank you!
