This charming version of a well-known chant takes place on the African savanna

In this beautifully illustrated rendition of a well-known children's chant, two sisters are looking not for a bear but for a lion—a lion that lives on the African savanna, where the girls go through swishy-swashy long grass, a splishy-splashy lake, and a Big Dark Cave. When they finally meet their lion, they have to run, run, run through it all again to get back home.

Young readers will enjoy the playful language and beautiful paintings that reset a familiar story in a far-off part of the world.
