  1. I adored this book The illustrations are gorgeous and the message is clear and thought provoking Should animals be caged Expected to ignore their natural instincts Should you be judged forever on one mistake I might be TeamKaren than TeamBeryl but I loved it just the same.

  2. This could have been so much better Maybe it s okay from a child s point of view, I ll find out one of these days But my plan is to use it as an opportunity to talk about what to do when unexpectedly encountering an animal in its native habitat I ve had many very close encounters with moose, but none with a predator.

  3. Both children, 5 years old and 8 years old, really liked this book I m not sure if it was the message about the unfairness of judging anyone on one mistake, or if the story just rang true to them, or something else altogether When I was reading it aloud to them, I thought it was going to be too threatening for them The little girl does get pounced on by a lion and clawed and bitten And this is based on a true story But the children were drawn to this book and wanted to read it than once.

  4. This book offers an interesting view on wild animals in captivity The main character Beryl Markham, relives her childhood lion attack while explaining to readers that no wild animal is ever really tame Although it offers this moral and beautiful pictures, I give it 2 stars due to it s lack of relevance to the elementary school classroom.

  5. By far the most chilling easy book I ve read while working in the children s department at the public library Might not be suitable for for most kiddos, but something 2nd grade and up I ll write a detailed review laterad full review here.

  6. Well done Though I wouldn t read this with a group of particularly young readers, I have to say this is a deserving addition to the impressive Don Brown collection that already exists Great book I particularly liked the endnotes.

  7. An account from Beryl Markham s memoir West with the Night of her terrifying encounter with a domesticated lion on a family friend s farm.

  8. Truly beautiful, truly a miracle in picture books It is the tale of becoming and being I read this aloud to my middle schoolers, and they loved it It truly resonated with them, the idea of being considered wrong, but you are only being yourself I read the origin of the story, West with the Night, by Beryl Markham She does write beautifully as well, but the lyrical, almost mystical flow of this picture book, I suspect, has to do something with the illustrator, Don Brown, or the editor, who is unn [...]

  9. Great book to share with kids about a girl who grows up to be an adventurer and bush pilot Sadly, it is out of print I liked the note from the author at the end.
