Our favorite pretend princess, Angelica, aka Jelly, is back! A case of mistaken identity, a wild imagination and a love of storytelling leads Jelly to tell her friend Joon and the new kid she's just met, Leo, that she's a part-time lion trainer at the local animal rescue center. Her inventiveness has them completely convinced, but things get a bit more complicated when the resident lioness, Mwezi, escapes from her enclosure and the kids look to Jelly’s "expertise" to save the day.

Kirkus Reviews - November 21, 2018
"Similarly imaginative chapter-book readers will connect with Jelly, and there's no question the lion facts are cool…[Jelly's] skills and the story's action-packed ending…reward readers."
