The Lovereading4Kids comment

A little girl finds the courage to stand up to a bully with the help of a clever plan. About to become lunch for Lion, Sarah has to think fast to save herself. What can she do in the jungle that no other animal can? Sarah can draw and soon she’s made all the animals happy with her pictures. Except for Lion. Lion hates the way he looks cross and angry in Sarah’s picture. But the picture doesn’t lie and all the other animals tell Lion so. Lion must change his ways to get a better picture of himself. And he does! Happiness all round.


Lion's Lunch by Fiona Tierney

When Lion meets Sarah walking in the jungle singing a happy song, he tells her she shouldn't be there! Nobody in his jungle just walks or sings: they prowl, creep, swing, lumber, slither and stampede. Or, they roar, yowl, grunt, chatter and harrumph!

An uplifting story that will inspire courage and confidence in all!
