Precious this time has been lucky enough to go and visit her Aunt Bee at a safari camp. Her journey to get there is not without difficulties, but no one should ever worry when Precious is around and when the truck she is riding in breaks down she has a wonderful idea about how to fix it! At the camp there is great excitement as a film crew are there filming a movie with a tame lion called Teddy.
Teddy the lion goes missing, however, and of course Precious soon finds herself helping the adults in trying to find him again. I love the gentle humour through the story, and the style of the writing is quite charming, with the author explaining to us how to pronounce certain words, or what different animals sound like.
Written in short chapters it's ideal for reading aloud in parts to younger school age children, or those a bit older can happily give it a go themselves. There are illustrations throughout and although they are quite simple drawings they are striking, and my sixteen month old son has become quite obsessed with the book and looking at the pictures, roaring each time he sees the lion!
