I am a lion, and my big brother is one, too ... until one day, he gets sick.

The narrator and his big brother have the best game in the world together. They are dangerous lions on the savannah! One day, big brother doesn't want to run around anymore. His stomach hurts. He has to see the doctor and take medicine, and even has to stay at the hospital. 

Lions don't want to be trapped by wires and tubes! The narrator instigates a hunt, and the brothers run around the hospital together, chasing gazelles and startling the wildebeest. But big brother is very sick and can't keep up. Lions can't cry, his little brother insists. But they can miss the rest of their pride. With Mom and Dad, the narrator tries to comfort his sibling. Soon, he knows, the two lions will go hunting again.

A tender story, unexpectedly punctuated by moments of humor, about the illness of a sibling, the love between brothers and the healing power of imagination.
