Author Info
Jose Aruego
Jose Aruego first began illustrating children's books in 1969 after moving to the U.S. from the Philippines to attend New York's Parsons School of Design. In addition to illustrating his own stories, Areugo also illustrates the work of other authors such as Mirra Ginsburg and Robert Kraus. Aruego created many of his illustrations in collaboration with his wife, Ariane Dewey. Although he and Dewey have divorced, they continue to work together.
From the Publisher
Annotation Leo is a sweet little lion cub who is taking his time to grow up. Although his friends Owl, Elephant, Snake, Plover, and Crocodile can already read, draw, eat neatly, and even write their names, Leo can't say or do much of anything. Leo's father is worried about his son's slow progress, but Leo's mother calmly explains that there is nothing to worry about: "Leo is just a late bloomer." As the seasons change, Leo continues to take his time to bloom, but then one day, all on his own, he does! Watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations accompany this gentle, reassuring story of individual growth, parental concern and patience, and great personal achievement.
First Line Leo couldn't do anything right.
Editors Note Charming illustrations and simple text depict the amusing dilemma of Leo, the frustrated tiger
