Monty's Magnificent Mane
Does Monty care about his beautiful mane more than he does his friends?
Monty the lion loves his long, golden mane, so he’s not happy when his meerkat friends mess it up. Stomping off to the waterhole, he’s cheered up by the flattery of a new friend . . . a green friend . . . a big, green friend. With a SNAP Monty realizes that his flattering pal is actually a giant crocodile looking for dinner. And it’s up to Monty to save everyone—including himself! An unusually appealing story of courage and friendship.
