Willis the Warthog has a big day in the African bush country. He helps his baby sister Greta deal with insults from some haughty lions. And, after they turn down an offer to play, his two monkey friends warn Willis that Leroy the Leopard might be hoping to put Willis and Greta on his breakfast menu!
As the warthog who believes in himself, Willis has plenty of friends to help him keep an eye on the leopard. During his successful flight, Willis loses something very important -- but not the respect and admiration of his sister, or of the wackiest support group, a brave young warthog could ever have.
This new book from the bush makes its way to children teaching them to “always believe in yourself.” "Willis," illustrated with photographs taken from the author’s many African safaris, is the third in a series of books by Patsy Smith Roberts.
The book debuts on Patsy Smith Roberts new website http://www.patsysmithroberts.com, which features stories and photographs from some of her 18 trips to Africa, purchase information on books and photographs, upcoming events and available retailers.
