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.
