By: James Foley
This is a story about a brave boy and a greedy lion. Richard is at the zoo where the lion has been swallowing other animals and people as well. Richard goes on a hunt to find them all.
This story is one of courage and fun. It has simple, clear and appealing illustrations, accompanying the easy, and repetitive text. A fun book to share.
