Martjie beland saam met ’n leeu in een van die Pagel-sirkus se treintrokke – en nadat sy die mense van die sirkus leer ken, weet sy dat haar lewe nooit weer dieselfde sal wees nie. Hierdie aangrypende, aksiebelaaide verhaal is losweg op die geskiedenis van die beroemde Pagel-sirkus geskoei.

When Martjie accidentally ends up in a train carriage with a circus lion, she knows her life will never be the same again. This touching, action-packed novel is loosely based on the history of the famous Pagel circus.
