The first thing about ‘The Great Big Lion’ that took me by surprise was that it was written as well as illustrated by a 3 year old Mensa prodigy, Chryseis Knight.

A book named “The ABCs of Virtues”, would it be preachy? This was the thought that came to my mind before we read this book. I worried needlessly. Not only was the book not preachy at all, it is probably one of the most unique books I’ve ever come across. Not written in a story form, it introduces 26 key virtues every child (human) should know – one for each alphabet!
