It tells the story of Leo-Pard, a very well looked after but extremely bored leopard. Having spent all his life in captivity, he dreams of just one night of freedom.

 

He escapes with his two friends, Rocky the American Cougar and Stripes the beautiful Bengal tiger.They all taste freedom, and tell their own story of how they came to stay at the zoo. Unfortunately, Rosa the Jaguar has to stay behind, but receives a strange gift and an even stranger new house guest, which gets the whole zoo talking and wondering what will happen next...

 

This beautifully illustrated story will introduce children aged 4-8 to important issues, such as conservation, working together, and even touches on aspects of equality, all gently pulled together by a slight sprinkling of magic.

Life should have been wonderful, but somehow, the zoo felt like a prison.  What was wrong?  What was missing?  What was it he longed for?  He didn’t know the word for it, but it felt like an itch that his claws couldn’t reach to scratch.

Continuing on from Terry McManus’ debut novel, Under The Stars with Leo-pard, comes Rosa’s Story, the second in the trilogy. Set deep in the lush green jungles and forests of Belize, Rosa’s Story is a full colour children’s book that will appeal to children aged 4-8 years.

 

Leo-pard, a well looked after, extremely pampered, but incredibly bored leopard, shared his story, but now it’s Rosa’s turn to shine, as she yearns for time out and freedom. But how does she manage it? With all the much-loved characters from the first book, including Rocky, the patriotic American cougar and Stripes, the beautiful Bengal tiger, Rosa’s Story is the next exciting instalment.

 

This richly illustrated story introduces children to some of the colourful and interesting creatures that roam the lands of the Mayan people. Walk with Rosa, the strong, stunning, jaguar, through the home of her ancestors as the story unfolds and the magic continues.

 

Inspired by J. K. Rowling, Rosa’s Story introduces children to themes of conservation, equality and the importance of friendship, all woven together with a touch of the extraordinary.
