Helen Stephens

illustrated by Helen Stephens

A charming holiday picture book about a girl, her pet lion, and a Christmas adventure.
Iris and her lion go everywhere together. But when Christmas comes and the family is going away, Mum says the lion must stay behind. After all, you can't take a lion on a train. Luckily the lion has other ideas. He sets off on a festive, snowy adventure to find Iris - and almost bumps into Santa Claus!
Helen Stephens's How to Hide a Lion at Christmas will warm young readers' hearts with its colorful illustrations and funny text depicting a sweet friendship.
