Summary
When Prince Leo the lion learns to use his wings to fly, he discovers that stopping is another matter entirely and crashlands in the kingdom of King Otto of the North who takes care of Leo and introduces him to the wonderful world of books.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Prince Leo discovers a new treasure -- books

When Prince Leo, a lion, is born with wings on his back, his father bellows, "Our son will go far!" It's not long before that declaration takes on a literal meaning. The day arrives when Leo flaps his wings and learns that flying is simple - but stopping is another story. Exhausted and far from home, he eventually crash-lands and is found by King Otto of the North, a bear who cares for Leo while he recovers. The best medicine of all turns out to be the books that are read to him - Leo's kingdom doesn't have books. When he's finally ready to return home - after taking flying and reading lessons - Leo will be bringing a wonderful treasure back with him. Chris Conover, with her large-scale, intricately detailed illustrations, has outdone herself.
