Leopold the Lion
Leopold the Lion is a book about a lion. There are two children, a boy and a girl, that are brother and sister. They find the lion and take it home. Their mom is busy so she doesn’t see them and their dad doesn’t care that much if they have a lion. Their grandpa, he knows, but he is going to let them keep it in their room. So they feed the lion lots of good food like pop and chips and candy. Then they are off to school. The lion is by himself and is feeling lonely. The kids don’t notice though. The grandpa tells them the lion is missing from the circus. The kids bring the lion to the circus and they laugh at the lion because he can’t do any tricks. The kids take the lion home and start to train him. They feed him good food from the grocery store and they tell him to play outside. The grandpa helps to train the lion while the kids are at school. He lets him jump through hoops and combs his hair. Then the kids can have a circus in their backyard! By Maverick age 7.
