Description

Curious Patience and steadfast Fortitude wait every morning to greet visitors of the New York Public Library—and slip away every night to read in the Children's Center.

But one day, Patience and Fortitude find their books gone. The two lions set out into the city to locate their missing library, and encounter some literary landmarks along the way.

Josh Funk's clever rhymes and Stevie Lewis's vibrant art take young readers into the heart of New York City in this latest adventure.



About the Author

Stevie Lewis has been living on the road, furthering her passion for climbing, art, and the outdoors. Striving to live simply and tread lightly on the earth, she gathers inspiration from a variety of places, be it climbing in the high desert in central Oregon, hiking in the wilderness of Alaska, or sharing laughs with fellow travelers around a campfire. After working for four years in animation, she now illustrates children's books and creates art based on her travels.
