Monty's Magnificent Mane
author/illustrator: Gemma O'Neill
Monty the lion loves his long, golden mane, so he’s not happy when his meerkat friends mess it up. Stomping off to the waterhole, he’s cheered up by the flattery of a new friend . . . a green friend . . . a big, green friend. With a SNAP Monty realizes that his flattering pal is actually a giant crocodile looking for dinner. And it’s up to Monty to save everyone—including himself!
Does Monty care about his wonderful mane more than his friends?
