The Leaping Lion by Lucy Courtenay

Brian the lion is small and springy and loves to leapfrog. He's leaped over hyenas and zebras and all the boulders in the jungle, and now he needs something even bigger to jump. Surely Troy the bull elephant won't mind being Brian's perfect leapfrog challenge...? A fantastic new series packed with crazy capers and brought to life by Phil Alderson's imaginative cartoonstyle illustrations.
