Product description

Now lions are usually fierce / And lions are meant to be strong. But Leo just wanted to love everybody / And play with his friends all day long.

Deep on the African plains lives a lion with a difference! All Leo wants is to love and hug his fellow animals. But that’s not how lions are supposed to behave! Find out how Leo brings happiness to the jungle in this heart-warming rhyming story. From the stellar team of Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz, the creators of Rumble in the Jungle and Giraffes Can’t Dance, this joyful picture book combines rhythmic rhyme with glowing savannah colours and a message about loving that nobody will forget.

Winner of the Red House Award 1998.

“This is an endearing story, with its well-known theme of love conquering all.” Baby Magazine
