The Lion Tattoo is based on a tale by Rumi the 13th century philosopher and poet. One day a young man decides that he wants a lion tattoo. But as the tattooist begins her work, the young man feels the pain of the needle and decides that his lion doesn’t need a tail…or a mane…or a stomach!  This hilarious picture book for older readers is guaranteed to make you think.
