McMillan Palgrave
Prince Leo discovers a new treasure -- books

When Prince Leo, a lion, is born with wings on his back, his father bellows, "Our son will go far!" It's not long before that declaration takes on a literal meaning. The day arrives when Leo flaps his wings and learns that flying is simple - but stopping is another story. Exhausted and far from home, he eventually crash-lands and is found by King Otto of the North, a bear who cares for Leo while he recovers. The best medicine of all turns out to be the books that are read to him - Leo's kingdom doesn't have books. When he's finally ready to return home - after taking flying and reading lessons - Leo will be bringing a wonderful treasure back with him. Chris Conover, with her large-scale, intricately detailed illustrations, has outdone herself.
