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!)
