The Summer Lion by Margi McAllister

Fans of Michael Morpurgo will love this animal adventure story full of charming characters and a lion. Drina loves nothing more than spending time with the old retired lion from her family's circus. Their only animal acts are the horses, who have a wonderful life, and Ma's little dog, who loves showing off. When Drina takes her lion to the village of Twidings for the summer, she discovers a plan to turn the ruined castle into a hotel with a theme park attached. It will ruin the community and the landscape. And even worse, the evil man behind the plans, Mr Cravat, has his eye on Drina's lion to be one of the main attractions. Will Drina and her friends be able to stop him in time?
