Leo and the Lesser Lion
A heartwarming family story set during the Depression that reads like a classic.
Everyone's been down on their luck since the Depression hit. But as long as Mary Bayliss Pettigrew has her beloved older brother, Leo, to pull pranks with, even the hardest times can be fun. Then one day, thereís a terrible accident, and when Bayliss wakes up afterward, she must face the heartbreaking prospect of life without Leo.
And thatís when her parents break the news: theyíre going to be fostering two homeless little girls, and Bayliss canít bear the thought of anyone taking Leoís place. But opening her heart to these weary travelers might just be the key to rebuilding her grieving family.
