About The Book

From the moment that Ace and John brought Christian the lion cub home from a London department store, they knew they had created a special family. But Christian soon grew too big to live with them in their small apartment, so Ace and John flew Christian to Africa to live with other lions. A year later, they went to visit. Would Christian remember them?

With wit and warmth, Justin Richardson, Peter Parnell and Amy June Bates tell the true story of an unusual family whose emotional reunion became a worldwide Internet sensation.
