A new Little Golden Book starring Disney Junior's The Lion Guard! This Little Golden Book retells an episode of the hit Disney Junior series The Lion Guard in which Ono the egret fills in as a rhino's tickbird. Children ages 2 to 5 will love learning that rhinos have poor eyesight and rely on tickbirds to warn them about any dangers. And, in return, the tickbirds get to eat all the bugs that flutter around the rhino. As always, Kion, Fuli, Beshte, Bunga, and Ono help keep things running smoothly in the Pride Lands!
The Lion Guard animated series continues the tradition of epic storytelling from The Lion King films. Every episode of The Lion Guard features a winning combination of compelling stories, relatable characters, humor, and heart.
