Jill and Lion by Lesley Barnes
Feisty Jill and her loyal companion Dog are back and ready for another adventure. Reading a new picture book, Jill is horrified to discover a magnificent lion forced to join the circus and drive a toy car around in endless circles. Lion is so demoralised, his tears have started to blur the words of the story.
Jill bravely decides to jump into the book and rescue Lion, landing in the middle of a particularly dangerous chapter. But with Dog at her side, nothing is too difficult for Jill to conquer, and she sets out to return Lion to his rightful place as king of the jungle.
