ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- "Once upon a time there was a hungry lion, a penguin, a turtle, a little calico kitten, a brown mouse, a bunny with floppy ears and a bunny with un-floppy ears, a frog, a bat, a pig, a slightly bigger pig, a woolly sheep, a koala and also a hen." That's the first page of this absolutely hilarious picture book. I'm afraid the last page doesn't quite say they all lived happily ever after, though it does have a happy ending for one of the above… For best effect, this must be read out loud, and it has become my current favourite to do so, because I'm yet to find anyone who doesn't laugh out loud, child or adult. Expressive and colourful illustrations add to the delight. Lindy Jones

-----

There once was a hungry lion, a penguin (Well he was just here...), a little calico kitten (I could have sworn I just saw him...), a brown mouse (Now wait a second...), a bunny with floppy ears and a bunny with un-floppy ears (Okay this is just getting ridiculous), a frog, a bat, a pig, a slightly bigger pig, a wooly sheep, a koala, a hen, and also a turtle. Hey! What's going on here...The very hungry lion is all set to enjoy an exciting day with his other animal pals. But all of a sudden his friends start disappearing at an alarming rate! Is someone stealing the hungry lion's friends, or is the culprit a little...closer to home? With sharp wit, adorable illustrations, and hysterical twists galore, this debut picture book asks - what do you think happened to the hungry lion's friends?
