Everyone knows there are no lions in the forests of South America . . . or are there?

Toucan heard it first. It was deep. It was growly. It was a deep, growly growl.
And that can mean only one thing: THERE'S A LION IN THE FOREST!
But how can that be? Everyone knows that lions don't live in tropical forests. But the growls keep coming--and now even Capybara and Coati are anxious, especially when they get a glimpse through the trees of a long, terrifying tail and a thick, menacing mane . . .
With a rhythmic text that begs to be read aloud, M??nica Carnesi's clever tale illustrates the importance of not rushing to conclusions. Young readers will get a kick out of sleuthing along with the forest animals as they try to get to the bottom of this sweetly suspenseful mystery.
