A perfect storytime pick about success, failure, and the danger of assumptions.  “It’s time to catch your own gazelle,” Papa Lion tells his little lion one morning. The cub thinks the task will be easy—which is his first mistake. He leaps on a gazelle, but it gets away from him. So the little lion laces up his sneakers, thinking he just has to outrun the gazelle—and makes his second mistake. Once again, his prey escapes! So the little lion tries to lure the gazelle into a trap. He tries to snag its horns in a net. He even tries asking nicely. But every idea fails. Maybe the little lion needs the gazelle to make a mistake of her own…This tongue-in-cheek tale offers a new delight on each page, then ends with the biggest surprise of all.  With madcap action and colorful artwork, The Biggest Mistake is sure to spark giggles from readers of all ages.
