The Snow Lion

The Snow Lion


Text: Jim Helmore

Illustrations: Richard Jones


Caro just moved into a new house. Everything is white: as white as white can be! She is lonely, until she meets a lion, who is white too. She plays, with him at her side, and becomes his friend. “Have you ever tried the slide at the park?” the lion asks. Hmm… It’s not easy to take a leap into the unknown. But wonderful encounters await!

    “Behind a truly vintage look is a beautiful story about shyness and openness towards others. The text by Jim Helmore is smooth and poetic and the illustrations by Richard Jones are magnificent. An incredible picture book to read again and again.”

    Pierre-Alexandre Bonin, Librairie Monet (Montréal)


    “The theme of adaptation, finely staged here through Jim Helmore's simple text and short dialogues, is supported by evocative graphics. The progressive apparition of colors on the house's indoor walls leads to the gradual disappearance of the feline, standing as a metaphor for Caro's openness to the world around her. Furthermore, Richard Jone's delicate style creates atmospheres reflecting the heroine's everyday life... Simply beautiful.”

    Marie Fradette, Le Devoir
