Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K--One rainy day, Evie pays a rather soggy visit to the zoo, where she bonds with a lion cub who complains that he is cold. She advises him to head for sunny Africa, the land of the lions, and decides to go with him. After informing her parents that she will be away for a while, Evie uses some bread crumbs to lure a swan and enlists her services for a flight. Vague directions lead to some false landings, one on a beach in what Evie thinks is Italy, and one in the desert. Just as the lion is losing heart, the pair arrive in the jungle. At last they find a pride of lions and Evie arranges for her friend's care. The next morning, the child is back in her own bed. Was it only a dream? This book has its whimsical moments, but logic is not its strong suit. Savanna animals such as zebras, antelope, giraffes, and lions are shown in the thick of the jungle. Also, children are sure to be puzzled by the cub's willingness to leave his mother to find a warmer climate. The cartoon style art is colorful, but Rex Harley's Mary's Tiger (Harcourt, 1990; o.p.) and Mary Jean Hendrick's If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo (Harcourt, 1993) offer similar themes with more satisfying story lines.--Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA
