    1. I thoroughly enjoyed this funny tale of brothers who send away for a lion with cornflake coupons Except instead of getting a lion, they get stuck with a series of unacceptable animals that cause all kinds of problems.I didn t realize this book was written and illustrated by English people until I saw the family in car and the dad was driving on the left I immediately reread the book with a fresh appreciation for the humor.


    2. Really cute story that seems absurd to parents but totally makes sense to little ones All the two kids want is a lion but they keep getting other animals and are very upset until they realize that the animals they have are unique and amazing.


    3. I ate up this book for breakfast and am still chuckling Loved the story and the illustrations Those cereal box prizes and offers are never what they claim, but this takes it to extremes Great fun

    5. Two young boys spend all their allowance buying corn flakes because they can get a free lion if they save enough coupons from the boxes By the time they ve saved enough the company has run out of lions so they send the boys a bear Not a great idea, according to the very disappointed boys When they complain to the company they are sent a crocodile That s not the answer they were looking for And the crocodile is a bathroom hog Dad is having none of it When he complains to the company the family is [...]

En ny favorit hos den unge kritikern Och ven hans far r glad i ironin som g r att finna i b de text och bildv rld Texten som s dan r relativt enkel och beskrivande i ungarnas frustration hur alla utom de f r ett lejon med posten Men sedan s visar bilderna p s mycket mer n vad texten beskriver vilket g r den b de underh llande att se p , men ven anv ndbara i att diskutera med barn Bilderna r ven f rglad, detaljerad och verdriven med diverse detaljer som g r ber ttelsen n mer absurd n vad den natu [...]
