Where Lions Roar at Night is an engaging read-aloud for the whole family. Enjoy the fun, adventures and dramas of a modern day ‘pioneering’ family as they begin home-steading in rural N.Z.
Ten-year-old Milly had always dreamed of living in the country and owning all sorts of animals. So when her parents buy a piece of land and move their six children into a ninety-year-old barn, Milly can’t believe her luck.
But she never imagined that living the simple life would include mucking out a filthy water tank, gathering endless supplies of firewood, clearing the land, and rescuing animals in a ‘hundred year’ storm. Nor did she expect to hear deep groanings in the night…
The first book in the multi-award winning series, The Barn Chronicles, Where Lions Roar at Night won the 2010 Australasian CALEB Prize for children’s books.
“Where Lions Roar at Night is a truly wonderful story that will be loved by all ages. It has everything – animals, family drama, exciting adventures, pioneering spirit, disaster, triumph, laughter and tears, and a wonderful New Zealand flavour. A must read!” Home-schooling mother, New Zealand
