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
