All reviews for The Butterfly Lion

  1. I have listened to this book on a CD. I really enjoyed listening to it. It was sad when the tiger cub died and the boy called Bertie. It had mystery and the story was amazing. I recommend this book to anyone who likes sad stories.

    The Butterfly Lion is a heart warming yet bitter-sweet story. Bertie is a lonely little boy in South Africa who one day adopts an orphaned white lion cub, who then becomes his best friend. They have a wonderful companionship but things take a turn for the worst when Bertie is sent to boarding school in England and his father sells the cub to a French circus owner. Their separation is heart breaking, however Bertie promises to find him again.
