iirc, there *are* stone lions in MoC that come to life.  If ther e*aren't* 
the memory is definetly a logical one -- at least for a few copies of MoC. 
My copy (MagicQuest) has Angelica and Tonino in front of this grand 
building with two big Stone lions on its cover, and I think a fefw other 
copies have a similar picture (I'm having trouble remembering what the copy 
I originally read looked like, and that was when I was 8 or 9 so I may be 
making it up, but I think that one may have had rearing stone lions, too)
