The Lion Who Stole My Arm

author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Annabel Wright

series name:
Heroes of the Wild

Pedru has always wanted to be a great hunter like his father, but after a lion takes his arm, he worries that he’ll always be the crippled boy instead. Pedru longs to kill the lion that mauled him and strengthens himself to be ready for the hunt. But when the opportunity arises, will Pedru have the strength to turn his back on revenge? Zoologist Nicola Davies perfectly merges a heart-pounding adventure with an important message about conservation, and Annabel Wright’s gorgeous black-and-white illustrations bring Pedru’s story to life.

Zoologist Nicola Davies presents an illustrated novel for young readers that proves you don’t need two arms to be strong.
