A pattern based on a Dutch poem by famous Annie M.G. Schmidt.

It's a poem for children about a moody lion that escapes from the circus.
He takes a stroll through Amsterdam while scaring off everybody on his path. The traffic stops, the tram driver screams. The lion walks through the old stamps market (bit old fashioned), and he scares people into the trees.
In the end a boy finds him and gives him some sweets. The lion starts purring and then returns to the circus together with the boy.

(And also for voting @blue_jacaranda!)<BR> @ rhonadesign, wow you actually had a circus in town when you were a kid? I have never experienced it before, but I bet I would've been scared as well if I could hear them roar at night, wow :D<BR> @Majo_bv, haha thanks! That's my favourite face of him too. And on the others he is just a bit grumpy and annoyed with the commotion, hehe. ;D

rhondadesigns says: Miriam, this is a marvelous illustration of the poem you chose! This lion is not too scary and the little boy is a hero! It would be a great fabric to use for quilts or pyjamas. You tapped right into one of my own childhood fears with this design. Whenever the circus was in town, and the lions' roars echoed in the night, I would huddle under the bedclothes and hope that the lions would not escape!
