Arlo could hardly believe his eyes; there, deep in the jungle, was a trunk, crammed full of elegant and stylish clothes, everything a gentleman could possibly want. There was even a mirror. The inevitable happened. Arlo became a Dandy Lion, what else. His parents and brothers greeted him with hoots of laughter, but one person did share Arlo's high opinion of his appearance, Alexander Poppel- hoop, the famous big game hunter. Before Arlo knew what was happening he was in, London in a zoo, basking in the admiration of an enormous crowd. But later he discovered the penalties of fame and the advantages of following the normal pursuits of lions. Even though it's written for readers from 5 to 8, it's fun to read, and the book is full of colorful illustrations. I.E.B.
