Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The touching, magical story of a boy in a war-torn country and the stone lion that rescues him. Renato loves his home in Florence, Italy. He loves playing with his friends in the Piazza della Signoria. He loves walking home by the beautiful buildings and fountains with his father in the evenings. And he especially loves the stone lion who seems to smile at him from a pedestal in the piazza. The lion makes him feel safe. But one day his father tells him that their family must leave. Their country is at war, and they will be safer in America. Renato can only think of his lion. Who will keep him safe? With luminous watercolor paintings, Barbara DiLorenzo captures the beauty of Florence in this heartwarming and ultimately magical picture book"-- Provided by publisher.
"When WWII threatens Renato's home of Florence, Renato's family must flee his beloved city. But Renato is determined to leave only after he has protected his favorite sculpture: the stone lion in the Piazza della Signoria"-- Provided by publisher.
