THE LION WHO CAME TO STAY (illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh)
In 1935 my grandfather Francis wrote a letter to his parents in India asking for a gift of 'something alive'.
This sparked a remarkable chain of events which resulted in him being given a tiny golden lion cub, Singh.
Singh and Francis became the closest of friends, going on grand adventures, searching the sky for stars, snuggling down to sleep—and learning to ROAR!
