Look before you leap…

Teach your young reader(s) to think for themselves and resist the temptations of peer pressure with a determined lemming who does things his own way. When Larry does his own thing, the other lemmings think he’s nuts, until they discover they have a hero in their midst. Being a “leaping lemming” doesn’t mean you always have to leap!

The delightfully funny text and energetic illustrations make Leaping Lemmings a picture book your little one(s) will love.
