“The book’s boldness lies not only in its willingness to present an issue that grownups find difficult to discuss, but also in the way it does so. A Lion in the Night stays at the level of childish pre-comprehension experience. And it’s written so cleverly and suggestively that it allows for each of its readers to have the right kind of reading, according to each person’s need.” – Yael Dar, Ha’aretz
