‘Reinventing her signature style with an element of the retro circus, Barnes has created a rather stunning follow-up to the Dragon tale, detailed and ornate on every page . . . Blurring the boundaries between the reader and the yarn this is a book that really captures the essence of storytelling, loyal friendship and bravery.’ Keira Brown, The Fountain

In this exciting follow-up to Jill and Dragon, feisty Jill and her loyal companion Dog are back and ready for another adventure.

Reading a new story, Jill is horrified to discover a magnificent lion forced to join the circus and drive a toy car around in endless circles. Lion is so demoralised, his tears have started to blur the words of the story. Jill decides to jump in and rescue Lion, landing in a particularly dangerous chapter, but with Dog at her side nothing is too difficult for Jill to conquer.

A celebration of friendship and bravery, Jill and Lion shows it isn’t a crown that makes us important – it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
