The third volume in the lavishly illustrated series of wildlife graphic novels, each following a single central animal through an adventurous day in their natural environment. Each tale depicts genuine natural behavior through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration. Both heartwarming and heartbreaking, this volume focuses on a solitary lion as it wanders the plains of Africa, handling the daily hunt, and vicious rivalry, without a pride of its own. The circle of life takes center stage in a world where predator and prey trade places on a regular basis, and family is something worth fighting—and dying—for. This exciting tale, written by Frederic Brrémaud, is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci. A beautiful, powerful tale of survival in the animal kingdom that explores the all-too-identifiable, universal concepts of life, courage, aging, and ultimately love.
