A playful picture book in need of a hero.

In the city there’s a zoo. And in the zoo there’s a lion. And in the lion there’s …

James Foley : In The Lion is my second book, and the first that I've both written and illustrated. It's a black comedy for kids. A young boy visits the zoo with his family, only to find an enormous lion is swallowing everything and everyone it can. Only the boy has the courage to stand his ground and stop the lion. The text is cumulative, like the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly- only in this case, it's a lion instead of an old lady.

  • A brilliant picture book by new talent James Foley
  • A detailed and fun story which kids will pore over
About the Author

Born in Western Australia, James Foley is the eldest of three children. James started his illustration career in primary school by drawing cartoons for the school newspaper. Unfortunately, the paper only lasted one issue, probably because his class faked a fire in the school hall using smoke machines to get their story on the front page. James started working more officially as a freelance illustrator in 2003 when he drew his first cover for the Western Australia’s weekly Quokka newspaper. James enjoys presenting workshops at schools and libraries and is always delighted to see the natural enthusiasm children bring to drawing, especially when they draw just for themselves and don’t care if it’s “good enough” or not.
