The Story of an Ordinary Lion

Leo, an ordinary lion, living in the desert, finds his life changed utterly, first when his life is saved by Father Jerome and he goes to live in a monastery, and then when he is wrongly accused of eating the monastery’s donkey, Rebecca. The monks can’t understand what he is saying, but he must somehow prove his innocence. This straightforward story is an entertaining version of a medieval legend, but it also touches lightly on the problems of understanding between animals and people and the crucial importance of translation generally… And (wonders Leo) might a lion be able to fly?
