What I liked about this book was the story line of learning to live with carnivores and we do have something in common because most of us are carnivores and will kill a less powerful being.

Interesting and sad facts are relayed at the end. The ultimate fate of the Lion relies on practical common sense solutions and respect and understanding for the Lion.

A quick read for for 2nd - 4th graders, the Lion Who Stole May Arm is fast-paced. Bloody details are left out without detracting from the story. The story is pro- conservationism without being overly preachy or detracting from the issues of living with lions. Perdu must decide whether to enact revenge on the lion who attacked him, causing him to lose his arm. He learns from conservationists near his village how to radio collar and track lions, put up fences and protect his village from lion attacks, ultimately allowing lions to live so that eco-tourism can help his country. Perdu must use all his skills as the son of a great hunter to track and, in the end, help the lion who took so much from him.
