A friendship story about being your best self and helping others to be theirs.
Discover your inner-roar with Ida, and your inner kindness with Hedge Lion!
Ida sees Hedge Lion every day on her walk around town. Hedge Lion wants everyone to think he’s a hedge. Nobody’s scared of hedges. But Ida is brave, she notices things that other people don’t, and she’s not fooled. She knows Hedge Lion is a lion, she just needs to help him find his roar… Along the way, Ida learns to be patient and kind, and Hedge Lion learns to be brave and confident.
