#TenderTuesday . . . The Lady and the Lion




“A dozen more lions came and took their place, watching her with their golden eyes. The Great Lion circled around her, then stopped in front of her and waited.”


From “The Lady and the Lion,” retold by The Brothers Grimm, re-retold by Jacqueline Ogburn and Laurel Long.
