There's a Lion in the Forest!

Out of stock
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.
