An Unordinary Lion is a rhyming picture book about a scary lion who decides to break away from the cruelty of the food chain.  The lion’s metamorphosis begins when he hurts his leg while hunting for his prey. While he is lying down helplessly, he starts to look at other animals differently. This sense of vulnerability helps him to reflect on his way of life, and he begins to feel empathy for other living beings.

This unpredictable transformation from predator to kind vegan creature is written in a witty way for both young readers and adults to enjoy. The picture of a lion and zebra feeding together is a metaphorical vision of a perfect world where all living beings exist in peace and harmony.
