LOL: The Lion Tamer
E. M. Hull writes The Lion Tamer, which was condensed by Barbara Cartland in October 1978. This is a circus story about Juan, the lion tamer, and Pauline, daughter of another performer who marries him to escape her brutal father. It's a story of misadventures until love triumphs over all.
Francis Marshall illustrates our couple outside the lion's cage. Our couple embrace and it's a tender moment for them. Note the hero's costume! Behind them are the ferocious lions! I think it's a talented illustrator who can draw both humans and animals well! Enjoy!!
