This favourite Munsch tale gets a fresh new cover treatment!
After their father reads them a story about lions, Elena and Isaac decide to become lions too. Growling their way through breakfast, and gnawing on “bones”, they soon trot off to school. But it’s only when one of their teacher decides to take both of their classes outside to look for animals that Elena and Isaac can really become kings of the jungle!
With a grrroooowwwwlll here and a grrrauuuughhh there, Robert Munsch delivers another irreverent snapshot into the world of children and their imaginations. It will leave all readers howling with laughter!
