In this "portrait of blissful intimacy" (Booklist), a little boy has had a day of excitement watching lions at the zoo and, while sleepy, can't go to sleep. As he cuddles with his father, the boy imagines a mother lion with her cub, and he's reminded of the cub again when he snuggles against his daddy's stubbly chin. Softly lit, slightly surreal, and "exquisite" (Publishers Weekly) illustrations extend the cozy, comforting mood of this soporific bedtime read.
