LONELINESS BREEDS FEROCITY

A young lion wanders the Serengeti in search of a pride to call his own. But being alone, he is watched with cautious eyes by those families he encounters along the way, including a coalition of rival males in search of their own pride to conquer.

So the nomad searches patiently, waiting for the opportunity to claim his territory and find a new family. But loneliness can lead to desperate action…

The third volume in the lavishly illustrated, award-winning series of wildlife graphic novels, each depicting a day in the life of different wild animals, told through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration.
