Morgan’s Nana gives him a lion toy that, he imagines, comes to life at night to help him face down his bad dreams

Morgan, an endearing tousle-haired little boy, feels big and strong during the day with his tall hat and his toy sword. But at night, when he dreams that a robber is coming through the woods to take these precious possessions, all of Mom’s assurances that “there is no robber” are not enough to ease his fears. Then Nana brings Morgan a stuffed toy lion, because everybody needs a lion sometimes—and because sometimes, fears in a child’s mind can only be conquered with the imagination. That night, Morgan rides a life-sized Night Lion into the woods and together they drive the robber far away. Comforting watercolour illustrations soothe any scary scenes, and the magical Night Lion will find an instant welcome in young readers’ hearts. A darling offering from author/illustrator Sanne Dufft.

Reviews:
“The final spread of Morgan confidently raising his sword echoes Sendak’s Max as king of the wild things. A comforting, enabling, picture-perfect bedtime read.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] beautiful book with wonderful illustrations….I hope to read this story over and over.”—Booktime
