The Butterfly Lion

The Butterfly Lion is one of my favourite story's . It is a very uplifting story about a young boy named Bertie. Bertie saw a white lion but when he went to tell his family nobody believed him but he kept believing in himself. And throughout the entire story I felt like I was there because the book was so informative about every little thing this book is impeccable I would recommend it to any animal lover!!
