Description

Our favorite pretend princess, Angelica, aka Jelly, is back! A case of mistaken identity, a wild imagination and a love of storytelling leads Jelly to tell her friend Joon and the new kid she's just met, Leo, that she's a part-time lion trainer at the local animal rescue center. Her inventiveness has them completely convinced, but things get a bit more complicated when the resident lioness, Mwezi, escapes from her enclosure and the kids look to Jelly’s "expertise" to save the day.

Editorial Reviews

"A highly satisfying first chapter book. The black and white illustrations by Jane Heinrichs are expressive and cooperate well with the text...similar to those in Sara Pennypacker’s ‘Clementine’ books."

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Well written and entertaining…she does put her imagination to good use several times by being able to come up with some pretty inventive solutions to problems that arise at the centre.”

— Resource Links

“Angelica is a great storyteller…Good story for Elementary School readers who are ready for chapter books.”

— Must Read Literature: K thru YA

"Similarly imaginative chapter-book readers will connect with Jelly, and there's no question the lion facts are cool…[Jelly's] skills and the story's action-packed ending…reward readers."

— Kirkus Reviews
