In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb

In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb

by Marion Dane Bauer Illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully

In this exuberant, rhythmic story, March, personified as a lion, enters a boy's cozy home and leaves a trail of snow flurries and muddy footprints. The boy calmly observes the pouncing, howling, growling lion until in comes the lamb on the crest of a huge sneeze.
