About The Lion and the Elephant:

Just like life, this book is your child's story. They get to color in the world that the Lion and the Elephant live and play in. They get to decide how the story ends! Pages upon pages of coloring book fun, paired with a modern story about friendship. Tutorials at the end will help the artist in your child make the best end to the book as possible!
