ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Stufo della sua routine nella savana, un grosso leone, curioso e solitario, decide di mettersi in viaggio in cerca di un lavoro, un amore, un avvenire. E arriva a Parigi. Parte così il racconto che Beatrice Alemagna dedica al cosiddetto Leone di Belfort, la scultura di Frédéric Bartholdi (lo stesso della Statua della Libertà di New York), che dal 1880 domina la Piazza Denfert-Rochereau, ed è da sempre uno sei simboli dell’iconografia della capitale francese. “Mi sono chiesta perché quel leone sia tanto amato dai parigini. Credo che sia perché sembra così felice, lassù dove si trova…”, spiega in fondo al libro l’autrice. Una storia surreale, tutta affidata alla forza evocativa delle enormi immagini e ai collage, che mescolano la forza visionaria di una storia fantastica agli squarci sulla routine e sui luoghi di una Parigi sulle prime distratta e disinteressata al nuovo arrivato.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"A Lion In Paris" is widely regarded as the most accomplished book by multi-award-winning children's author/illustrator Beatrice Alemagna. It tells the story of a lion who, bored by his rural life in the savanna, seeks excitement and opportunity in the City of Light. Upon arriving in Paris, the lion is disappointed to find that despite his size, people barely pay attention to him, not even when he lets out a ferocious roar on the busy underground Métro. Revealing the sights and sounds of Paris from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, this beautifully illustrated book successfully conveys the experience of being a stranger in a new city and the process of understanding one's own identity.
