Yum, yum, yum--
What are the strange sounds in Johnny Lion's room?
This beloved I Can Read Book captures all the misery--and coziness--of a day in bed with a bad, bad cold. Every child will triumph with Johnny Lion when he feels better the next day and the only sound in his room is a healthy ROAR!
This easy-to-read story about the easy-to-love Lion family is told through the lighthearted text of Edith Thacher Hurd and the tender pictures by her husband, Clement Hurd, the illustrator of Goodnight Moon.

"Johnny Lion had a bad, bad cold. Kerchew! Kerchew! Kerchew!" Relegated to his bed for the whole day, Johnny dozes on and off, awakened periodically by his mother and father to take some red medicine. But each time he takes the medicine, he has bad dreams about swoosh-swooshing owls with big round eyes and giant red rabbits tiptoeing towards Johnny to add him to a stew. It takes a comforting song, something delicious to eat for supper, and a nap in his parents' bed to finally do the trick, giving Johnny happy dreams and restoring him to good health.
There's nothing quite so uncomfortable--and yet comforting--about spending the day in bed with a cold. Johnny Lion's doting parents' firm yet loving caregiving is just what the doctor ordered. Young readers with a touch of the sniffles (or a "bad, bad cold") will recognize the not always unpleasant coziness of giving in to mom and dad's attentions, and look forward to the moment they can roar with health again!
