Its Erin Hunter

Its an okay book, but there is violence (cause its Erin Hunter) and one use of damming near the end of the book. It bears a lot of resemblance to lion king so its good for fans of that.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (8 ):

Erin Hunter travels to the plains of Africa in her latest animal fantasy series, which follows a young lion, a baboon, and an elephant through adventures sure to thrill current fans and win new ones. Some of the situations and descriptions -- murdered parents, adults trying to kill youngsters, predators stalking and devouring prey -- may be too much for sensitive kids. But there's a lot to love in Broken Pride's young heroes, its colorful world, and its positive messages about family, friendship, and being true to yourself while helping your loved ones.
