Reception

A Lion in the Night has been reviewed by the school library journal and Kirkus reviews that called it "A nighttime romp" and wrote "Allen's funny drawings, full of lovable characters and amusing details .. are deployed across the double spreads in a series of rhythmical dances to echo the wonderfully cadenced text. The dream-adventure makes the night exciting, but leaves baby safe and sound when the sun rises, in this fantasy that begs to be shared aloud."

It has been read/taught in schools. and has inspired a number of theatrical productions.

It also received the 1986 Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa Russell Clark Illustration Award.
