    • This book is on the Golden Sower Nominee 2011-2012 list. This book is geared toward a younger crowd (prek-1st grade). The boy in the story makes wishes for things such as candy and fast shoes.


    • Willoughby the Lion uses complex and engaging illustrations to teach a very simple lesson: you can have everything under the sun, but nothing is worth more than a True Friend. Young Willoughby is bummed; he moved into a house he doesn’t like and is far away from everything, including his friends. One day, a mysterious lion shows up in his backyard saying he’ll grant Willoughby 10 wishes. Willoughby wishes for a big house, fast shoes, a roller coaster, sweet treats and more. Willoughby soon l [...]


    • Love, love, love this book! This is a story about a lion who had huge wishes and dreams. This lion was enchanted. Willoughby lived a lonely life. However, Willoughby wanted his wishes to be granted. I recommend you read the story to truly understand it


    • Willoughby gets 10 wishes and uses 9 to ask for some typical childhood dreams. He finally figures out a wish that brings him happiness and contentment on the 10th.The illustrations are lovely - black and white line drawings (pen & ink?), accented with gold objects and shapes.


    • "Willoughby Smith hated his new house." And so begins this story about a boy winning the proverbial lottery and finding out what is really important to him.He finds a sad golden lion sitting on a rock outside his house. The lion has the power to grant ten wishes, but unless the boy wishes for "the most wonderful thing of all" the lion will be a captive forever.Black line drawings are embellished with gold foil depicting the various wishes. In the end the boy receives a special coin.


    • The design and mixed media illustrations in this picturebook are home runs! The premise, maybe a bunt. But I LOVE the removable cardboard coin embedded in the back cover--every design element was created with great intentionality and flair. No wonder Greg Foley's the creative director for magazines like V.


    • (picture book for older readers) Wow! The illustrations in this book are amazing. I never would have thought that a book that started off with extremely simple black and white illustrations would turn out to be a book that had amazing gold foil become a part of the illustrations! Older readers who may be in the transition of leaving picture books for graphic novels will be glad that they chose to read this book as one of their final picture books! The author sends out a very important message to [...]


    • Willoughby and the Lion is written and illustrated by Greg Foley. This book is about a child who has recently moved to a new house. He is unhappy with his new house and then he finds a giant golden lion in the backyard. This book teaches a valuable lesson about friendship. This books audience would be just about anybody. I think it lends itself to reading aloud, although you should expect to tear up while reading. I think this book could really be used across all of the elementary school grades, [...]


    • Willoughby & the Lion is a book about friendship. Willoughby just moved away from his house and is now in a new house that is much smaller than his old and he has no friends or anything to do. One day, wondering in his back yard, he find a gold Lion and the lion grants him 10 wishes. Willoughby wishes for a bigger house, fast shoes, and things that made him happy. After the ninth wish, the lion really missed his own home and running around with other lions. Willoughby made his last wish and [...]


    • PICTURE BOOK FOR OLDER READERSI thought this book was an interesting rendition of the magic genie who grants three wishes. It is about a boy named Willoughby, who finds a giant statue of a lion sitting on a rock in his backyard. The lion gives him 10 wishes, but he says, "Unless you wish for the most wonderful thing of all, I'll be stuck on this rock forever." Willoughby wishes for everything a normal boy would wish for; a big house, a roller coaster, lots of friends, etc. The reader never finds [...]


    • "Willoughby and the Lion" by Greg Foley is a good book for children who are in between the novel phase and picture book phase. The story tells of a boy, Willoughby, and his boring new house. One day, while Willoughby was complaining, a Lion appeared on a big rock in the back yard. He began explaining that he will grant Willoughby ten wishes, but he must make a correct wish in order for the Lion to be able to move off the rock. Upon receiving this news, Willoughby begins wishing for objects such [...]


    • I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it reminded me of the genie who grants three wishes. It is about a boy named Willoughby, who finds a giant statue of a lion sitting on a rock in his backyard. The lion gives him 10 wishes, but he says, "Unless you wish for the most wonderful thing of all, I'll be stuck on this rock forever." So, Willoughby wishes for a bigger house and a rollar coaster, a lot of friends and all the things that bring children excitement. In the end, the lion leaves Willou [...]


    • Willoughby & the Lion is a heartwarming story that both children and adults can enjoy.The story entails a young boy who is very unhappy in his new home. He finds an enchanted lion in the backyard who tells the boy that he can grant him ten wishes. The boy immediately starts wishing for fantastical things, and the lion becomes very sad over the course of time. He tells the boy that he misses home and his lion friends. The boy tries to cheer him up, but the he still hadn't wished for "the most [...]


    • Greg Foley, Willoughby and the Lion (Bowen Press, 2009)Covers much the same ground as The Bake Shop Ghost (elsewhere in this issue), but much more focused on design than on story, and suffers for it. It is, however, a very pretty thing to look at, and Foley draws on some interesting source material for at least one of the pictures here (he notes it in an afterword); adults may find more to get out of the particular frame than kids will. My biggest problem with it, however, is the over-dramatizat [...]


    • This book is about a boy named Willoughby, who finds a gold lion statue in his back yard. I finds out the the lion statue is able to grant him wishes, and so he begins to wish for a bigger house, roller coaster, food, and many other things. After his ninth wish, he realizes the lion is missing his home. He makes his tenth wish and then falls asleep. Once he wakes, the lion is gone and everything has gone back to normal. I really enjoyed this story for older readers. I think it sends a good messa [...]


    • The story is about Willoughby who is a sad and lonely boy. He finds an enchanted lion in his backyard, especially one who can grant all sorts of fantastic wishes. Willoughby wishes for many different things that will make him not lonely any more. Roller coasters, and fast, fast shoes, and enormous crowds of people. This story can definitely captivate the imagination of students. It can be read to any age but only older readers will be able to get the deeper message out of the story. The illustra [...]

    • This story taught the lesson that maybe not always what you want in life if the most important thing. The magic Lion grants Willoughby 10 wishes. People come from all over to see this magnificent Lion. Once Willoughby gets everything he thinks he wants, he realizes that his friend the Lion isn't happy and wants to make him happy. He is rewarded with a small gold coin that says true friend, while the rest of the material objects disappear. The artwork in this story is very metallic looking and a [...]


    • In an attempt to read more children's literature, I picked up this book. The first in a series of books featuring a young boy named Willoughby. The story is unremarkable but shows potential. There is an enchanted lion who shows up in the boy's life and I'm sucker for lions, especially beautiful ones. The illustrations are what really shines in the book. Greg Foley is both the author and illustrator and the latter role is definitely his strength. The illustrations are breathtaking and unlike anyt [...]

    • Audience: The audience for this book is primary elementary school. Because of the story line and the pictures (although not colorful but simple), I would say this book would be best for kindergarten or first grade.Appeal: I think this book would appeal to kindergarteners and first graders because they love to use their imaginations and talk about wishes just like the little boy had to do. It is also an easier read.Application: I would use this book for a small group activity where I would have t [...]


    • Audience: This book is intended for primary elementary readers K - 3rd grade. I believe all four grades would appreciate this book. Appeal: This book would appeal to all ages, the artwork is fun and different and the topic of friendship is appealing to all ages. Application: This would be a great book to read aloud to all and then have the students to a fun activity, writing what friendship means to them, or if you had 5 wishes what would you wish for, or this would also be a great book to integ [...]


    • A story that fell just on the wrong side of "quirky" for me to truly love it. Simple line drawings with splashes of metallic gold tell the story of a lonely boy in a new house. When he discovers a lion who can grant him ten wishes, he uses them for all the most exciting things he can think of. Of course, it's no surprise to anyone that he uses his last wish to free the lion from his wish-granting obligations.This story really ins't anything new, but the metallic overlay is interesting and unusua [...]


    • I'm not too huge on this story, but it allowed for a big discussion with the class about what happened at the end. I was impressed by some of their theories. "The lion left because he wanted to go home." "He wished for it all to go away and the lion wanted to run with his friends." "The lion came from the coin so he jumped out of it and then jumped back in when he wanted to go home." "The lion lost his tooth but didn't know it and then left so the tooth fairy came and left a coin." "The lion poo [...]


    • A wonderful read-aloud for kids preK thru grade 3 (but I have read it to older kids). Willoughby hates his new, smaller house, until one day a lion comes to grant him 10 wishes. The lion warns that unless the boy wishes for "the most wonderful wish" of all, the lion will stay with him forever. It's great to see the kids' reactions to the boy's wishes, and to hear them try to figure out what the best wish could be. It's also a great book to show how the illustrations help to tell the story. Only [...]


    • This is a really striking picture book, created by a guy who is obviously very talented. I liked the three "Bear" books, but they got progressively hokier and hokier. This one suffers from a little too much syrup as well. It just feels like Foley tries a wee bit too hard to achieve that "awwwwww!" moment in his books not quite at a Michelle Tanner level, but close. Still, the illustrations are so amazing that I can overlook that a bit.


    • "I've got the power to grant you ten wishes. But unless you wish for the most wonderful thing of all, I'll be stuck on this rock forever."When Willoughby Smith, who hates his new house, finds a gold lion in the backyard, his life begins to improve with material things. But with every wish, the lion seems to become unhappier. Finally, Willoughby realizes what his last with needs to be.Themes: friendship,


    • A fable-esque story about the value of thoughtfulness. When Willoughby is given 10 wishes by a magical lion sitting upon a rock, he wishes for everything a boy can dream of. But if his last wish is not the most wonderful thing of all, the lion will be stuck on the rock forever. Shrouded in mystery, the audience can guess what Willoughby's final wish was. Accompanied with line artwork and gold paint (to represent his wishes).


    • This book is about a young boy who just moved to a new house and away from his friends. He looks out the window and sees a golden lion that said he would grant the young boy ten wishes. As they read along, students can keep track and count all of the different wishes in order. It would be perfect for young students learning to count. In the end, Willoughby & The Lion teaches the value of friendship.
