Description

Richard hears something in his room before bedtime. Is it a monster? He doesn't wait to find out and sets off running through the streets, over the hills, through the forest, and into the fields until he finds himself in a magical jungle. With the help of his stuffed lion Lionheart, Richard finds the courage he needs to face his fears.

Praise For Lionheart

Praise for Lionheart:

"Collingridge's magnificent paintings employ realism, abstraction, and shifting scale. Grand landscapes harmonize with small, supplementary black-and-white drawings. With posture, texture, and sumptuous, glowing colors, Collingridge maintains a delicate balance between high drama and comfort, risk, and safety." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A gentle and beautifully crafted tale about fear and imagination." -- Booklist

"This fantasy about facing one's fears is well-suited for a bedtime tale or one-on-one sharing." -- School Library Journal

Praise for When It Snows:

"In his first picture book . . . Richard Collingridge dives headlong into a fantasy of the season, showing it to be a vast and mountainous expanse of white, both eerie and enchanting." -- The New York Times

"Newcomer Collingridge's paintings are sumptuous and absorbing, creating a genuine sense of magic. And, as the final scene makes clear, it's a kind of magic that any reader can access: 'And I can go there every day... because my favorite book takes me there.'" -- Publishers Weekly
