Roary the Library Lion loves reading, and spending time at all the different libraries in South Ayrshire, really is his ‘dream come true’. The only problem poor Roary has, is deciding what book to recommend next, from action packed adventure by Robert Muchamore, to crazy comedy from Steve Cole or lots of horror from Anthony Horowitz…our loveable lion really is spoilt for choice!
Books that Roary recommends are for children of primary school age. (Although Roary believes that a good book can be enjoyed whatever age you are!)
