We're Going on a Lion Hunt by David Axtell
This charming version of a well-known chant takes place on the African savanna.
We're going on a lion hunt.
We're going to catch a big one.
We're not scared.
Been there before.
In this beautifully illustrated rendition of a well-known children's chant, two sisters are looking not for a bear, but for a lion-a lion that lives on the African savanna, where the girls go through swishy swashy long grass, a splishy splashy lake, and a Big Dark Cave. When they finally meet their lion, they have to run, run, run through it all again to get back home.
Young readers will enjoy the playful language and beautiful paintings that reset a familiar story in an unusual and very special part of the world.
Two girls set out bravely in search of a lion, going through long grass, a swamp, and a cave before they find what they're looking for.
