Deep in the burning African veld, a young boy rescues an orphaned white lion cub. But when the lion is sold to a circus, the friends are torn apart. How will their story end? This modern classic from Michael Morpurgo sweeps from a British boarding school to the African wilderness, and from the First World War to the present day. Full of striking landscapes and dramatic encounters, it is a vivid and heartwarming story of friendship against all the odds.
