Red Light, Green Lion

(3) PS Illustrated by Jennifer Yerkes. "Red light, green li-" reads a dozen-odd right-hand pages; turning the page reveals the concluding letters to each "li-": “-on” (a dapper green lion prepares to cross the street), "-ghtning!" (lightning spooks the lion), etc. Will the lion ever get across the street? An omniscient narrator ("Some days are not like most days") walks readers through this suspenseful word game, tastefully illustrated with pastel and brush-pen line art.
