Now lions are usually fierce, And lions are meant to be strong, But Leo just wanted to love everybody, And play with his friends all day long ...

Leo isn't like other lion cubs. Instead of chasing zebras and antelopes, he wants to make friends and hug them. But can a lion who's so different ever fit in with the rest of the pride?

A feel-good story from the author of international bestseller, Giraffes Can't Dance.
