Praise for Christian the Lion

"An entertaining and lighthearted portrait"—Publishers Weekly
 

“The layout is excellent, with both text and photos presented in an uncluttered, easy-to-follow format. This is ultimately a satisfying story about an extraordinary relationship. It will intrigue children raised on Owen and Mzee and Knut the polar bear.”—School Library Journal
