The World-Herald has captured the story of the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium lion cubs in “The Littlest Lion,” a children’s book written by Carol Bicak.
The cubs’ story is told through the eyes of Zuri, the runt of the litter.
The zoo’s staff helped her not only to survive but to thrive as she rejoined her family.
“The Littlest Lion” is filled with beautiful photos by The World-Herald’s Chris Machian and Kent Sievers, and facts about lions are included at the back of the book.
The book, which costs $14.95, can be ordered online at www.OWHstore.com or by phone at 402-444-1014.
