HOW TO LOSE A LEMUR (Sterling Children’s Books, April 2014) by Frann Preston-Gannon is the tale of a little boy who has struck the fancy of a bunch of adoring lemurs! While walking through the park one day, a friendly lemur starts following the boy – uninvited. Before he knows it, even more lemurs are on his tail. He does everything to ditch the playful creatures, from jumping on a train, to flying in a hot-air balloon, to climbing the highest mountain… but nothing works. The parade of lovable lemurs stick by his side no matter what.
When the boy realizes he’s traveled too far and has gotten lost, his constant companions show why they make the very best of friends! Can knowing a lemur be a good thing after all?
Delightfully humorous and playfully illustrated, HOW TO LOSE A LEMUR shows children why it’s important to give new friends a chance.
