Product description


"Bauer turns the shopworn simile into a fresh, rousing story about lion and lamb. . . . And onward to April, allergies and all."—The New York Times Book Review

"The title's familiar proverb, muse for many a postwinter bulletin board, inspires this picture-book interpretation. . . . both the words and pictures offer a warm depiction of the change of seasons—along with a shout-out to young springtime allergy sufferers."—Booklist

"In Bauer’s capable hands, the age-old simile of March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb is made quite literal. . . . While the text provides the skeleton, McCully’s pen, ink and watercolor illustrations truly bring the old song to life. . . .  A good addition to the spring shelf, it is sure to find its way, roaring and bleating, to classrooms studying similes."—Kirkus Reviews

"Newbery Honor-author Bauer (On My Honor) and Caldecott-winning artist McCully (Mirette on the High Wire) have fun with a familiar weather simile. . . . The palette of McCully's wispy pen-and-ink watercolor art brightens as spring blooms, while the cadence and rhyme of Bauer's verse are as variable as March itself."—Publishers Weekly
