Annemarie van der Eem and Mark Janssen: I Want a Lion
Jules has a plan, a wild plan. He wants a pet, but first he has to convince his reluctant mum. Jules asks for a lion! Then he tries for a hippo. He even says he wants a goat. 'OK, so what about a parrot?' Jules asks ... Mark Janssen's noisy, boisterous illustrations bring this romping story to life. Animals from Jules' imagination swing and stomp on to the page, from a grinning gorilla to a huge hippo with yellow teeth. Children will love the fun premise of the book. And it won't be long before parents are asked, 'Please may I have a pet lion?'
