A plucky young owlet decides to try and find his own dinner one day and so flies from the safety of his nest into the unknown world surrounding him. Little does he know that his nest is in a tree in the middle of a zoo - and he quickly finds himself face-to-face with a lion. Yet, instead of being eaten, the owlet and lion become friends. As the zookeeper tries in vain to rescue the owl, the owl comes up with a plan to help the lion escape too.Based on a true story that happened at Paignton Zoo (on the south coast of England) and with stunning illustrations throughout from new artist talent Alice Shirley, author and illustrator of the successful Illustrated Classics edition of Aesop's Fables also published by Pavilion.
