When Beryl Markham was a small girl, she and her father settled in East Africa. This was the land of rolling savannahs, sparkling oases, majestic animals, and where a little girl was eaten by a lion. In this story 'The Good Lion,' we learn how Beryl's father wisely instructs her on the dangers of Africa. He tells her that this even includes, Paddy, Elkington's TAME lion. He cautions her by telling her that, 'a tame lion is an unnatural lion and whatever is unnatural is untrustworthy'. In this story, we are asked to ponder the question, should a lion be punished for acting like a lion?

This book tells a simple story of a day in the life of a chick; from hatching, to being hissed at by a cat, falling in the pond, and returning safely to mother hen's wings. The phrase 'like this' is repeated throughout the book, as concepts are explained with brightly colored illustrations.
