About the Author

He divides his time between London and Sydney. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

This book about two Australians who buy a pet lion they name Christian at Harrods in London was published in 1971. It has been updated and republished since the phenomenal online success of a video about the reunion between the lion and the men after the cat had been rehabilitated by George Adamson (BORN FREE) and released into the wilds of Africa. It's a warm, loving story that retains its relevance decades after the events. John Lee is an able reader. He uses just enough of an accent to give the Australian setting authenticity, but not so much that it interferes with the story, especially for American listeners. The pace of the text is lively and engaging. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
