This is the story of Leonard Lion, a little cub who is full of energy and very excited for the day ahead. He lives in Africa with his four friends Ethel Elephant, Betsy Buffalo, Lucy Leopard, and Ralphie Rhino. Together they are the Little Big Five. Every morning, soon after the sun rises, they meet at their favourite place, the watering hole. They play games and have fun before heading off into the savannah to explore.

Today the game is hide and seek, but before long they find themselves swept up in a dangerous adventure. Poachers and traps await them in the dark shadows. Will they survive? The young friends will have to look after each other if they are to get out alive. Leonard Lion will need to think of a plan to save them all. Will he remember his mother’s advice? Will he be especially brave? Join the Little Big Five in the first of their many adventures.

    This is a bright and colorful book that draws young readers into an exciting adventure. Brilliantly written and beautifully illustrated, this story not only tells a great tale but equips children with the values of courage and friendship that they will need in life...Well worth buying!

    I bought this book for my 6-year-old son. He absolutely loves it. It is a great story and he can relate to the characters as his favorite place to visit is the zoo. The story held his attention the entire time as he wanted to know what was happening next. He says he wants to be brave like Leonard Lion.

    I bought this book to read to my grandchildren and they thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. I have 19 grandchildren and will be reading this story to each one of them as I think that it is a great inspiration for them to be brave.

    I read this story to my P3 class and they loved it! It was so engaging and the children hung onto every word! It sparked lots of conversations about friendship and courage. I’m sure this lovely story with its vibrant colors, will be read many times.
    We look forward to reading more stories about Leonard and his little friends.

    We had the pleasure of attending a special reading and my daughters were fully engaged from the moment Michelle started speaking! My eldest daughter loved following the story of Leonard and what he and his friends were able to get through together. A book for parents & children who love a great story with a great message.
