Julio Bunny and the Foreign Lion (Julio Bunny Series), by Nicoletta Costa

"Julio Bunny and the Foreign Lion is a very sweet story with colourful pictures and simple text. Young children will love the variety of animals and creatively drawn settings. Parents will love the message of working together to problem solve and the ability to apply the message of embracing differences to their child's own life. My own child loved seeing Harriet Hare on the back of a white horse in a beautifully drawn circus setting. Julio Bunny and the Foreign Lion is a great read for young children or preschoolers." -- Amazon reviewer
