Lion bullies all the other animals until finally they can’t take it anymore, so they post an ad, asking for help. even the largest among them fail to defeat him. When a rabbit arrives, no one thinks the small animal will be brave or strong enough to defeat Lion. But perhaps this rabbit is smart enough?
If you think you already know the ending to this quirky re-writing of “The Tortoise and the Hare”, wait for the twist at the end of the tale! Lion vs. Rabbit is a picture book triple-threat: a funny story, adorable illustrations and a great message.
Recommended for Pre-k through grade 2.
