Wonderful books for young adults!!!

Leon, the friendly lion, is almost in the same situation as Gavin. Even though lions are known as the most ferocious animals in the entire world, Leon is mild-mannered and prefers staying indoors and writing short stories or poetry. Feeling alone, he looks for a decent job so as to meet new people and make friends. Unfortunately he has no luck, as no one wants to hire someone as scary as him.

This book was very boring. It had a story about a talking stuffed lion that didn't go anywhere in the story.

I am SO grateful to have received a copy through GoodReads First Reads:

A cute concept and well laid out. The large text on lined pages makes it great for beginning readers, and the topics are fun and entertaining. However, the story of the toy seemed somewhat disconnected from the plot of the book itself, (or perhaps the other way around since the title is about the Toy). This book contains two fun and good stories, I just wish they were either better connected or told separately.

I received a copy of Leon the Lion(The Diaries of Robin's Toys)as a part of Goodreads First Reads. It is a good children's book for beginner readers. The book has easy an easy to read typeset with lots of drawings to interest even younger readers. A cute story with a nice message.

This book was a cute read. My 8 yr old niece enjoyed reading it but had some problems with words. I'm not really sure what the age group is for the book. I liked the idea of the book a lot but thought it was too long. There are also pictures every few pages to enjoy.
