Whoops! What's a dentist doing in there?!
In the tradition of 'There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly', this hilarious romp of a read builds ever more crazily on just what's inside the lion. A hairdresser? An armadillo? What next?
But there's more to the storyline than that, because also at the zoo is a small boy named Richard. And when it comes to saving the day, it's Richard who proves that he has the heart of a lion!
The repetitive, rhythmic text, combined with the delightfully expressive illustrations, make this a particularly great book to read aloud with the little ones. Lots of fun!
