A Lion Among Men: Volume Three in The Wicked Years (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 days from Our Distributor
In the third volume of Gregory Maguires acclaimed series, the Wicked Years, we return to Oz, seen now through the eyes of the Cowardly Lion.
While civil war looms in Oz, Brrrthe Cowardly Lionsurrenders the story of his life to a tetchy oracle named Yackle. Abandoned as a cub, Brrrs path from infancy in the Great Gillikan Forest is no Yellow Brick Road. Seeking to redress an early mistake, he trudges through a swamp of ghosts, becomes implicated in a massacre of trolls, falls in love with a forbidding Cat princess, and avoids a jail sentence by agreeing to serve as a lackey to the war-mongering Emperor of Oz.
A portrait of a would-be survivor and a panoramic glimpse of a world gone shrill with war fever, Gregory Maguires A Lion Among Men is written with the sympathy and power that have made his books contemporary classics.
About the Author
Gregory Maguire is the author of several best-selling adult novels, including Wicked, which was turned into a Broadway musical. His books for younger readers include the picture book Crabby Cratchitt, the novel The Good Liar, and the popular Hamlet Chronicles series. While writing Leaping Beauty, Mr. Maguire sadly became allergic to all creatures great and small. Now he lives in a house without pets, though he is the father of three happy, noisy small children to whom, at this writing, he has not yet developed allergies.
