about this item
The team behind If I Had a Dragon bring us a bold, colorful look at Morton’s latest daydream—a safari! Morton is bored playing baseball all the way in the outfield. But if he were in the jungle, he could be a lion or a zebra or a hippopotamus! Yeah, if he were a jungle animal, then things would be exciting. But maybe too much excitement is too distracting! After all, a ball could be coming right toward him!
Bored with standing in the outfield with little to do, Morton begins to daydream about what life must be like as an animal in the jungle, but as he thinks about what it would be like to be a great lion roaming in the grass, a ball is hit in his direction and he must quickly get back to reality in order to make the play.
