The Lion Who Couldn’t Count to Three

Lion has helped countless children who didn’t know how to write get interested in the alphabet. Now all those who have trouble with numbers can look forward to a new story.

The beautiful lioness is kissing someone else! The lion with the sharp teeth can roar as loudly as he can – it doesn’t help at all. Those who can’t count to three are in trouble. Therefore the lion sets out to solve the mystery of numbers and a bit of calculating helps him to win back the beautiful lioness’ heart ... Martin Baltscheit has succeeded in creating the ideal sequel about the well-loved bigmouth.

• If the fear of numbers is great, this endearing ruffian will surely help – with lots of laughter (wonderfully disrespectful!)
