Russell Hoban's moving, unflinching tale of a boy who finds bravery during illness is reimagined in graphic-novel format with art by Alexis Deacon.

Asleep in his hospital bed, Jim dreams of a great lion with white teeth and amber eyes. This lion is Jim's finder. According to Nurse Bami, everyone has a finder, a creature who comes looking for us when we are lost. But when the time comes for Jim's operation, will his lion be able to find him and bring him safely home? Dramatically reimagined as a graphic novel by award-winning illustrator Alexis Deacon, with the inclusion of powerful dream sequences, Russell Hoban's tale of a boy's search for strength and courage will resonate with any child dealing with adversity.

Russell Hoban (1925–2011) once described himself as “an addict to writing” and wrote more than fifty books for children, including such classics as
Bedtime for Frances and
How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen. With Candlewick, he was the author of
The Sea-Thing Child, illustrated by Patrick Benson,
Soonchild, also illustrated by Alexis Deacon, and
Rosie’s Magic Horse, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Alexis Deacon created the acclaimed picture books
Slow Loris,
While You Were Sleeping, and
Beegu, a
New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year. He is also the illustrator of Russell Hoban’s
Soonchild. Alexis Deacon lives in London.
