Fetching young Hamish prefers life in the great outdoors. One day he mistakenly opens an envelope, which leads to movie stardom and sudden wealth. He buys property and begins raising lions, but soon the celebrity life gets the better of him. He flees the glitz and glamour, choosing his big cats over the big screen . . .
With charming, distinctive pen-and-ink drawings coupled with characteristically succinct text, Edward Gorey leads us—as only he can do—through the mysterious circumstances that envelop Hamish on a long journey that begins with a single misstep. First published in 1973 and long out of print, The Lost Lions is an ever-popular Gorey classic.
