Meet Kyan the creative koala, Leo the lion who loves performing, Piers the homesick penguin and Zoe the sporty zebra in these first four books in the Top of the Class series. Leo Lion is a little bit vain and hates his new haircut. He doesn't feel himself at all until he enjoys performing so much that he forgets to be miserable and realises that looks aren't so important.
