The Wonderfully Wild Ones, written by Adeline Schneid and illustrated by Ashley Belote, is a wonderful children’s story full of fun adventure as three lions cause a ruckus at the zoo they live in. The zookeeper begins threatening to find them a new home which prompts the lions to find a way to escape. The three lions make another round of chaos as they attempt to put their plan of freedom into action. Will the lions get out of the zoo and be free like they plan to do? Will they stay together or go their separate ways? Are there lessons to be learned from the lions and their erratic behavior? Will the lions ever settle down and where are they now? Will the lions return to zoo life without the chaos or roam free?

I adored the story of The Wonderfully Wild Ones by Adeline Schneid. The plot is fun, interesting and full of adventure as the lions cause chaos at the zoo. The characters are smart, funny and easy for anyone to be entertained by their antics. The illustrations by Ashley Belote are colorful and tell the story through the images just as efficiently as Schneid’s story. My favorite thing about The Wonderfully Wild Ones are the lessons kids will learn about the importance of freedom and not taking those closest to you for granted. I recommend The Wonderfully Wild Ones to anyone with children and hope that Schneid and Belote will team up for many more stories like this in the future.
