Michael Morpurgo writes a heart-warming book about a young boy Tom who witnesses a lion walking through an orchard. With great excitement he tells his family and friends, but no-one will believe him. He is shouted at by his father, gets in trouble with his teacher, ridiculed by the police, and is made fun of and laughed at by his friends. Clare, a girl in Tom’s class, is the only person who knows Tom is telling the truth. Tom is determined to prove to everyone that he is telling the truth. Together Tom and Clare devise a plan to capture the lion on camera. However, things change quite dramatically as Tom comes face-to-face with the lion. He soon realises that the lion is a pet and they become good friends. They take the lion to school and to the police station, proving to those who doubted Tom that the lion really does exist.

I found this book to be quite engaging, turning over each page wondering what was going to happen next. It is a beautiful and humorous story with a slice of revenge at the end.
