This is a timeless classic that my children have loved for almost 20 years! The story of Herbert and his girl is just so compelling, so precious, and so imaginative! The artwork is lovely and captivating. All of my children have adored this book and we read it again and again [I love it too!].
  • Vushura
Very nice story, my 4 year old loves it. Happy ending. Obviously a book written by an animal lover. It does help that we love lions too!
  • Niwield
My favorite childhood book! I have to share it with everyone who has a baby.

I had never seen this book before and was amazed that it was written in 1931. The illustrations seem very contemporary---maybe a little retro, but ultimately timeless. The story is charming as well, and I appreciated how the parents in the story didn't dismiss the lion's needs---the family "pet" was treated like a member of the family (not that I think lions should be pets, of course, but that's not the point). Overall, a delightful addition to any young child's library.
  • Worla
One of our favourite kids books, the loveliest illustrations!
  • Khiceog
This book is an example of one that I bought for myself, before I was a mommy and before I was a children's librarian. About ten years ago I was intrigued by the wave of retro-looking illustrations that began to hit the bookstores, so I picked up this book that has older-looking illustrations, because it is an older story.

Having said that, this book should not be dismissed as only have reference value for those wanting to create retro-looking illustrations. The illustrations do propel the story, and improve it, but standing alone, the story is charming. And this book passes the toddler test.

I've lost count of the number of times I've read this to my children...There is something so appealing in this story. It has a great sense of an earlier time and place, when "the milkman or the postman or the grocer or the butcher's boy came to the door", but my children love the child-centeredness of the story, as if they could express a want for something, like the little girl who wants "a lion, a real live lion", and I could be like the mother in the story who "one day brought her one from downtown". A nice story with a happy ending, good for bedtime.
I recently discovered the author Clare Turlay Newberry and am thrilled and excited about her work. Herbert the Lion is a delightful story about a little girl and her lion and all of the obstacles that they go through. At first I was worried that the illustrations would not grasp my kindergarten students' attention because of it's lightness. Was I WRONG! They absolutely loved the illustrations and story line and I lost count of how many times we reread this book, as well as other books by Newberry. You must read this book and other books by Newberry.
