About the Book
The Tawny Scrawny Lion stars in his first Step into Reading book!
Fans of the Tawny Scrawny Lion, star of one of the bestselling Little Golden Books of all time, will now be able to read about him all on their own! This Step 1 Step into Reading title has been adapted from the original Little Golden Book story for early readers. Freshly illustrated in the style of the original book, this witty tale about the Tawny Scrawny Lion—and the clever rabbits that turn him into a vegetarian with their delicious carrot soup—is the perfect addition to the Step into Reading line.
Step 1 readers feature big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
