The Lions at Night

by Jessica M. Boehman

By day, the lions Patience and Fortitude guard the New York Public Library. By night, they have been known to go on adventures inspired by the books their favorite librarian reads to them. In Jessica Boehman’s debut wordless picture book the lions take a late-night subway ride to the wild and wonderful Coney Island, where the two lions fit right in as they indulge in some nostalgic New York City-style fun. Will the lions make it back to their perches at the library before dawn? And will anyone notice they have been gone?
