A Lion Among MenBook - 2008
As civil war looms in Oz, Brrr, once a lion cub rescued by Elphaba, now a spy for the emperor, attempts to get vital information out of the dying oracle Yackle, only to learn important truths about his own mysterious past.
Return to a darker Oz with Gregory Maguire. In A Lion Among Men, the third volume in Maguire’s acclaimed, New York Times bestselling series The Wicked Years, a fuller, more complex Cowardly Lion is brought to life and gets to tell his remarkable tale. It is a story of oppression and fear in a world gone mad with war fever—of Munchkins, Wizards, and Wicked Witches—and especially of a gentle soul and determined survivor who is truly A Lion Among Men.
An entertaining third volume in the The Wicked Years series, following Wicked and Son of a Witch, focuses on the adventures and exploits of the Cowardly Lion. 300,000 first printing.
