Alex and his family bought a lion cub in a pet shop. They wanted to give him a good home. George was friendly and gentle, but he was growing fast. He grew too big for Alex’s bedroom...too big to sit in the shopping trolley... and too big for the backyard. The zoo arranged for him to travel to Africa. Will he feel at home in the wild and remember Alex when he visits him?
