Solomon the Lion
Solomon is a young lion who just can’t fall asleep. He tries sleeping in a tree, like a bat, but that’s not quite right. He tries to snooze in a pond with the hippos, but that doesn’t work either. Finally, Solomon realizes that it’s not where you sleep that matters, but who tucks you in at night. In this picture book, fabric art replaces conventional illustrations, while the use of shweshwe fabric plays homage to Africa’s rich tradition of storytelling.
