Christian the Lion

Everyone’s been talking about Christian the Lion, last year’s most-visited (44 mil) YouTube film clip. The extraordinary footage captures the remarkable and highly moving reunion of two men and their pet lion, Christian, after they had left him in Africa with Born Free's George Adamson, who would introduce him into his rightful home in the wild.
Room 8's Sam Nicholson (on the photo with Lucy Ohj) is one of the three winners in Random House’s poster competition where primary and intermediate schools from around the country were invited to make a poster inspired by Christian the lion’s remarkable and true story. Thanks to Sam, he and his Room 8 classmates were some of the first people to get their hands on a copy of Christian the Lion:The true story of a lion’s search for a home.
Sam has won 30 copies of the book for his class, and Random House has also asked
bookstores throughout the country to display his poster to promote the new book.
