We Are LIONS!

Jens Mattsson & Jenny Lucander

I’m a lion! My big brother, too. Roaaar! We are a flock. We hunt gazelles and gnus on the savannah. When we catch them, we eat them up. Because we are dangerous.

Little brother and big brother have the world’s best imagination together. They are dangerous lions on the savannah. When big brother gets sick, he can only roar quietly. But lions don’t want to be tied up in tubes and drips, and soon they are hunting again. A lady-zebra with a walker, and an old man-hippo in pajamas, they are all prey at the hospital. When big brother gets very tired, little brother thinks: Soon we’ll hunt again.

A tender, humorous and heartbreaking story about the love between two brothers and the power of play and imagination in overcoming the unspeakable grief when the older brother gets sick.
