Hear Me Roar
Arnold is a pink lion living happily with his flamingo family, until he meets a pride of more traditional lions, and starts to wonder where he belongs. But he learns a valuable lesson about who he really is when a mean old crocodile turns up to threaten his old family.
Petra is a mighty mountain who can’t be moved by the wind or time. Or so we think, until we discover that she’s actually even more astonishing than that. Petra’s imagination means she can be anything she wants to – an island, an egg, or even an elephant. Not a bad life for a little rock.
