Shola and the Lions
Shola is a small white dog who lives with her devoted owner, Senor Grogo. When Senor Grogo's friend returns from Africa, Shola enjoys his stories about his trip, but most of all, she loves hearing about the strong, powerful and noble lions. Convinced she is really a lioness, Shola decides to prove her true heritage.
When she attacks a flock of pigeons, the old lady feeding them calls her a wild beast- Shola is delighted! But lions hunt for their food, so Shola's biggest test comes when she has to reject Senor Grogo's scrumptious supper and set off in search of prey…
A charming story about an ambitious little dog convinced that she is actually queen of the jungle.
