Chloe & the Lion Book Review

Chloe and the Lion by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Adam Rex

Mac and Adam are writing a book together, about Chloe and a Lion. But when Adam decides to draw a dragon, things go from bad to worse. Soon Adam has been eaten by said Lion, a new illustrator has been hired, Chloe is being drawn terribly, and Mac doesn't know what to do. With Chloe's help, Mac seeks out a way to save his story and his illustrator.

Reminiscent of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, Chloe and the Lion is a fun collaboration between a very funny author and a hysterical illustrator. Using different forms of art, claymation and puppet wallplay, Mac and Adam create a story that will entertain both children and the adults reading to them. I absolutely loved this book and once again am singing the praises of Adam Rex.
