Lion Cub was walking around in the Safari Park and it was his first time there. The rest of the animals thought he was a cool cub and asked him where he came from. Lion Cub told them he was from Africa and they were curious to know what it was like because they had never been outside the Safari Park. He told them that Africa was a beautiful place and had trees made of magic sweets and the grass there was pink. The animals at the Safari Park were excited as Lion Cub went on describing the other animals living there and the place. He told them he was very important there and was known as the King of the Jungle. The animals at the Safari Park listened in awe and wanted to go to Africa. They couldn't believe Lion Cub was a king there.

The Lyin' Cub by Andy Blackford and Rob Jervis is an adorable story with an equally adorable message for young readers. The illustrations are lively and bright and they bring the Safari Park and the animals to life and make the story captivating. The message of being honest has been woven into the story wonderfully, making it easy for readers to understand and realize the importance of telling the truth. It is a good storybook for read-aloud and storytelling sessions at homes and in schools for parents and tutors to help children accept themselves for who they are and be honest about it. The story of Lion Cub will encourage children to tell the truth and make them understand the reason why it is important to always tell the truth.
