I have recently read this book in class, it is a very good one my very first book I read by the author Micheal Morpurgo. There are two mane characters one is a lion and one is a boy. The lion is named "The White Prince" by this frenchman who owns a circus in France, (where I am living now). The boy is named "Bertie" who lives in Africa with know brothers and sisters, he was a very lonley boy until one day the Butterfly lion came and lived with him. It has a very happy ending, I always like them.
