Product Description

A lion is gobbling up sausages in the orchard! It’s strolling calmly through the trees with a string of sausages dangling from its mouth. Tom can hardly believe his eyes – and nobody believes his story. He knows the lion was real. But his parents don’t believe him. His friends don’t believe him. In fact, only one person does: the smartest girl in Tom’s class. Can Tom and Clare prove that his story is true – by catching the lion?

    The title of this book was the thing that caught my attention. The sausage lion. I find the word ‘sausage’ really funny (weird, i know) and i love lions (hence the avatar!) * * * * *!
