The Lion and the Unicorn

The Lion and the Unicorn


This powerful story about a young child's wartime experiences is told with the enthralling illustrations of one of the best-loved children's authors, Shirley Hughes. As Lenny's father goes off to fight in the second world war he gives his son a brass badge with a lion and a unicorn on it. Lenny keeps it with him when bombs are dropped on his street and when he has to be evacuated to a big house in the country. He misses his parents a great deal and the other children there and at school are spiteful in teasing him.
