Members of a large group of animals, including a penguin, two rabbits, and a koala, disappear at an alarming rate but the hungry lion remains.
This one is best for bigger kids who will not mind its food chain theme. (In other words, I don’t recommend using it for preschool storytime.)
Not for the very sensitive, or those who are especially fond of cute little animals.
But yes – I laughed.
