This unlikely pair are born together in the tradition of the Mexican Alebrijes, which are brightly colored Oaxacan-Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures originating from the paper mache- and/or-wood carved adaptions which were pioneered by Arrazola, a Mexican craftsman in the 1930's. Miraculously enough, this is the story of an Alebrije that actually comes to life as an African Lion and a South American Anteater. These two animals have no choice but to learn the lessons of cooperation and understanding which results in appreciation and shared love.
Through their newly gained empathy and understanding, they begin to resolve their frustrating differences through a multitude of hilarious adventures. This children's story provides a humorous example of two characters forced to live together as one.Get the book on amazon.com/author/janiskirstein
