But it's true', Tom shouted. 'It was a real lion, I know it was'. No-one believes Tom when he says he has seen a lion - padding around the orchard with a string of sausages in its mouth! No-one, that is, except for Clare, the cleverest girl in the class. Together, she and Tom plan to prove his story is true - by catching the lion!

UK Kirkus Review » It is Christmas Eve and as Tom fetches logs he sees a lion padding through the orchard with a string of sausages in its mouth. His mother and father don't believe him, even when he sees it a second time. At school, his friends laugh at him, all, that is, except Clare. Fed up with being teased Tom and Clare hatch a plan to prove to everyone that the lion is real. The tension builds to a thrilling climax in this deeply satisfying story. (8-10 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
