Everyone knows there are no lions in the forests of South America…or are there?

Toucan heard it first. It was deep. It was growly. It was a deep, growly growl.

And that can mean only one thing: THERE’S A LION IN THE FOREST!

But how can that be? Everyone knows that lions don’t live in tropical forests. But the growls keep coming—and now even Capybara and Coati are anxious, especially when they get a glimpse through the trees of a long, terrifying tail and a thick, menacing mane.

With a rhythmic text that begs to be read aloud, Mônica Carnesi’s clever tale illustrates the importance of not rushing to conclusions. Young readers will get a kick out of sleuthing along with the forest animals as they try to get to the bottom of this sweetly suspenseful mystery.

“The Animals of the Atlantic Forest of South America.” “Saving the Golden Tamarin.” Suggestions for further reading. Full-color illustrations created with watercolors and colored pencils.

PreS-Gr 1-Trouble is brewing and animals are getting anxious "deep in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil" as one by one the creatures begin to fear that there is a lion in the forest! Despite the fact that they all know there are no lions in South America, when they hear the roaring, see the golden fur, and glimpse the long tail, they are sure the evidence proves that they are seeing a lion. Featuring animals of the rainforest (capybaras, toucans, and coati to name a few) the lesson in the dangers of jumping to conclusions is delivered with good humor and a very appealing cast of animal characters. Back matter adds further details to all the animals, especially the endangered golden lion tamarin. Pencil and watercolor illustrations capture the details of the animals and all of the fun of the building hysteria. VERDICT Fun and informational at the same time, this has a solid message for the intended audience: Take the time to gather all the evidence before leaping to conclusions. This title would be welcome in most libraries for the diversity of animals and setting that it features.-John Scott
