The Lion King: Cub Stories - Book One, Ch.5Chapter 5 – The Way OutMore Like This
So many trees. The cubs had never seen this many. And shrubs, thick shrubs, carpeting the ground. Greenery everywhere, a dense labyrinth of vegetation. All kinds of strange howls, calls and chirrups sounded from the heavy canopies.
“Whoa!” Chumvi gasped. “What is this place?”
Simba looked up at the mysterious, mist-shrouded treetops in amazement.
“My dad said it’s called the jungle. He said it’s no place for lions.”
The other three looked at Simba apprehensively.
“But it looks so cool,” Chumvi whined. “Nothing like the Pridelands.”
“We don’t know anything about this place,” Tama added. “It could be dangerous.” Her ears picked up as another alien noise resonated from the trees.
“We only need to know one thing,” mused Nala. “How to get home.”
With a casual glance in all directions, Chumvi hummed to himself, as if deep in thought.
