John Agee

Scallywag Press

How do you earn a lion diploma? By looking fierce, prowling around, roaring, and – most importantly – looking out for your friends. Will this daring student pass the test?

Selling points

  • Hilarious description of a crash course in becoming an honorary lion.
  • Brimming with Agee’s trademark irony, as our feisty little narrator seems to be going to fail, but comes good at last.
  • Feel good ending full of confidence and kindness.
  • Funny cartoon style illustrations guaranteed to make you chuckle on every viewing.
  • Hugely popular US author/illustrator who is fast building a fan club in the UK.
  • Jon’s last title Wall In the Middle of the Book won an Irma Black Honor and was a Sunday Times Culture Magazine Children’s Book of the Month in the UK.


'This fun journey of character development neatly turns the conversation from the cowardice of bullies to what it means to be lionhearted, all in a delightful, subduedly comic package.' - Booklist, starred review

'Agee's sentences are short and punchy, and he carves out gouache shapes in thick, deliberate ink outlines. He sets up a ridiculous situation with a straight face, approaching it with understated humor and leonine confidence.' - Publishers Weekly, starred review

'An outstanding read-aloud and a rewarding story.' - Horn Book, starred review
