    When Willoughby moves to a new house, small and isolated, with a treeless yard, the young boy isn t particularly happy Then he encounters a golden lion who offers him ten wishes, telling him that if he wishes for the most wonderful thing of all, he the lion will be freed from the rock on which he sits Willoughby wishes for all sorts of wonderful things, from a palace to a roller coaster, but it is only with his tenth wish, made after he spends some time with the lion, that he hits upon that most wonderful thingAlthough I would describe the conclusion of Willoughby The Lion, in which the eponymous hero wishes for a view spoiler true friend hide spoiler

    What would you do if you had 10 wishes That s the premise of this picture book Reading this to my class I got the vibe I was enjoying this story a little bit than they did The premise was a nice springboard for discussion.Not sure this will be part of my friendship week read aloud for next yearunless I move to a higher grade level I think older students may pick up on the moral than my still fresh first graders did.

    Willoughby is a young boy who just moved to a new small house that he doesn t like He has no friends close by and there is a huge, mysterious rock in the backyard One morning was quite a bit interesting than usual, Willoughby spotted a lion sitting on the big rock The lion granted Willoughby 10 wishes however, if he doesn t wish for the most wonderful thing, lion is stuck there forever Willoughby wishes for a bigger house, a roller coaster, fast shoes, a hot air ballon ship, yummy food, and X ray vision Lion becomes sad because he misses his family and home Willoughby and the lion became best friends It was that night that he whispered his last wish into the lions ear and the next morning everything was normal again There was a coin laying on the rock where lion used to be It said true friend The gold, black, and white colors in the book really made the pictures pop It adds nice contrast and gives the book a unique twist Willoughby was a cartoon figure with just an outline of his body, whereas had dimintion This was consistent through out the entire story Because of this, most of the pictures were flat I thought the storyline was somewhat strange However, this story made it work In my opinion, the overall theme of the story is that you can wish for everything in the world, but true friends are really the only thing that matters This book would have to be for older readers because the storyline requires deep imagination for them to understand the purpose.

    Willoughby the Lion uses complex and engaging illustrations to teach a very simple lesson you can have everything under the sun, but nothing is worth than a True Friend Young Willoughby is bummed he moved into a house he doesn t like and is far away from everything, including his friends One day, a mysterious lion shows up in his backyard saying he ll grant Willoughby 10 wishes Willoughby wishes for a big house, fast shoes, a roller coaster, sweet treats and Willoughby soon learns that no matter what he wishes for, they re worthless without a friend to share them with Greg Foley s illustrations are both spare and multifaceted with a limited palate of white backgrounds, bold black lines and metallic gold accents They merge illustration and graphic design in a way that might appeal to older children The cover is a little confusing, an embossed gold coin, but makes sense when you get to the end of the book, which includes a gold coin as a keepsake.

    It was a cute children s story, and it was rocking and rolling until you got to the quite ambiguous ending, which is not what you want or need to have in a children s story.
