Freddie Mole Lion Tamer: Win 1 of 3 books

May 18, 2016

Which çhild doesn’t dream of joining the circus at some point? In Freddie Mole Lion Tamer, an ordinary boy does just that.

Freddie comes from a poor family, and getting invited to see the circus with his friend Luke is a real treat.  The next day when his dad is repairing the circus washing machine – Freddie learns the circus is looking for an employee, and is thrilled to be given the job.

Freddie is a very hard worker. He collects rubbish, washes dishes and then discovers he will be the understudy for some circus acts! Flying the trapeze is one thing, but will Freddie be brave enough to face his fears when he is told he will be working with the lions?


A beautiful book about dreams, hard work and facing your fears. My 8 and 9 year old daughters loved this book, and read it to master 3 who enjoyed it too.
