This is a very cute book about a lion and a snake whoa re competing to see who is the smartest and strongest of the kingdom. Horace the lion and Sylvester the snake Boast about all the ways they are better than the other. Until they get into trouble and they have to work together to get free. I would use this book for grades K-3. It would be a great introductory lesson on how we are all different but special in our own way.
