Shola and the Lions

by Bernardo Atxaga


Add to basket


“So…” Shola wagged her tail doubtfully, “if I’m a lion, why does Grogóinsist on calling me a mere mutt?”

Shola is sure that her noble nature and ambitions of grandeur mean only one thing – that she is, in fact, not a dog but a lioness. To the bemusement of her long-suffering owner, Señor Grogó, she sets off to prove her heroic status to the world (and to herself).

If only those pesky ducks, nonchalant cats and tempting snacks weren’t there to stand in her way…
