Guion the Lion was excited and he wanted to share it with Rae the Bushbaby. He swept his arms wide to make Rae experience the epic occasion of the Kingdom preparing to fight the mighty dragon. Rae could only see an ugly dirt mound and termites working hard to make it even bigger. The scary dragon was a giraffe, chewing with his mouth open. Rae wanted Guion to get his eyes checked.

Guion the Lion by Rebecca Macsovits is a whimsical and enchanting story that introduces readers to Guion the Lion who has a unique way of looking at the world. His vision makes the story into a whimsical and fantastical adventure for readers who love to dream and enjoy being creative and aesthetic. This story has it all; a magical kingdom with dragons, a pirate ship that adds to the underwater experience, and dinosaurs that will leave readers fascinated and enthralled by the time they finish the story. The illustrations are as adorable as the story and its characters and add color and charm. The underlying messages of acceptance, adventure, eagerness, curiosity, and empathy have been woven into the story with expertise.

Guion the Lion by Rebecca Macsovits is a wonderful book to use for read aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms, school libraries, and homes, and the questions at the end of the story and the 'let's talk' session are useful for interactive sessions with children. The story discussion will give them the freedom to look at their surroundings with a new outlook and get to know the characters and their messages.
