Caring for Your Lion

by Tammi Sauer, Troy Cummings
What happens when a little boy expects an itty-bitty kitty . . . but a lion is delivered to his doorstep instead? Caring for a lion is hard work, but could the king of the jungle end up being the purrrrr-fect pet?
Praise for Caring for Your Lion
“. . . laugh-out-loud fun. Allow plenty of time to giggle over the details.” —Kirkus Reviews
