The lion is asleep in the middle of the jungle and a mouse runs over his paw by accident. The lion wakes up when he feels the mouse on his paw and threatens to eat the mouse. The mouse begs for his life, saying that if the lion will free him the mouse will return the favour one day. How does the mouse help the lion?

It's the lion! He is lying down just like he was on the cover of the book. He is resting his enormous head on his paws. Feel all over his fur with both your hands. It is soft and a warm yellow. Do you know any cats? Well, lions are quite like cats. In fact they are related. But lions are much, much bigger and stronger and even prouder than cats.
We're very lucky to be able to stroke this lion, because it would be much too dangerous to stroke a real one. Can you find the lion's face at the right side of the feely picture? pause Feel his brown nose in the top right corner. He uses this big nose to smell other animals, so he can catch and eat them.
