King lion is having a feast. All his animal subjects bring their favourite meal -- seawater lemonade from the fish, snail sausages from the hedgehog and thistle salad from the donkey. But which dish will King lion like the best? From the author of The Story of the Root Children, this tale from the animal kingdom is told in lively rhyming verses, and beautifully depicted with illustrations in classic art nouveau style. This is the first time this book has been published in English.
