Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back
By Shel Silverstein, Author & Illustrator. Shel Silverstein’s first book, Lafcadio, the Lion Who Shot Back, is 50! This whimsical tale about a lion’s quest for self-discovery was published a year before The Giving Tree. The anniversary edition celebrates this milestone with vintage full-color jacket artwork. “You don’t have to shoot me,” said the young lion. “I will be your rug and I will lie in front of your fireplace and I won’t move a muscle and you can sit on me and toast all the marshmallows you want. I love marshmallows.” For ages 4 and up.
