Thread: Book from 80's...or 70's, about a rich lion.

    Default Book from 80's...or 70's, about a rich lion.

    I am trying to find a book which I had as a child, I was born in 84, but my sister was born in the 70's so it could easily have been one of her hand-me-downs!!
    The book was about a rich, gentleman lion. I am sure, from my memory of the pictures, that he lived in London. The images were quite dark, not your usual happy kids book!
    The lion also wore a top hat and suit.
    He ended up losing his money and living on the streets.
    I really don't remember much else, but I can clearly see the illustrations in my head!

    Thank you in advance, I do hope someone can help me!

    The Lion who shot back? by Shel Silverstein?

    No, I tried that. But thank you for your input.
    My mum finally remembered what it was.
    It was The Famous Lion.
