I'm sitting in the time-out chair because my mother put me there. She said, "You try my patience, child! I do not like it when you're wild." Wild? Who me? That is so absurd. How could she even use that word? If I were a lion. I'd growl and roar And knock the dishes on the floor... AND if I were a bear... If I Were a Lion is a book for every child who's ever been sent to the time-out chair -- unjustly...or otherwise!

When Sarah can't get to sleep, she goes through the alphabet in her head, trying to think of people she knew in elementary school whose names begin with each letter.
