Look out, Sarah: If you can't impress the lion, he'll eat you for lunch A quick-witted girl teaches the King of the Jungle a thing or two about good behavior.
Sarah is strolling through the jungle, singing a happy song, when Lion pounces. How dare she trespass on his turf? He is King of the Jungle--where nobody strolls and sings: They lumber and grunt, sprint and squeak, slither and harrumph Lion makes an executive decision to eat the little girl for lunch. But Sarah thinks fast: True, she can't wallow like the hippo or wriggle like the snake, but she can draw. She paints a portrait of Lion. "I don't look that grumpy " he protests. "Yes, you do " all the animals chorus. Soon Sarah is the jungle's artist-in-residence.
