The library is a birth place for imagination. It is a glorious retreat for action, adventure, silliness, any emotional excitement that exists. Knudson displays the comforting, homey feeling of a library through her Children's book, Library Lion. The librarian, Miss Merriweather, is apprehensive at first to the lion's presence, unsure if he can follow the rules of the library but soon she finds him to be delightful. Mr McBee, the library assistant is not so keen on the lion and does his best to act on his jealousy by ignoring the lion. The lion does his best to be helpful and kind to all while following all the rules. However, when an incident arises, the lion will have to decide whether or not to break a library rule.

This story is heartwarming while teaching children about rules, jealousy, and what to do when a true emergency occurs. Knudson really knows how to write simply so all ages can enjoy and comprehend the story all the while creating and maintaining character development. One of the best things about this book, besides the story itself, is the classical feel that the illustrations lend to the story. I love how they make you feel like the book itself has been passed down from generation to generation. It adds that warm, comforting feeling to the audience. Knudson's Library Lion will always have a home on my bookshelf.
