    The remarkable story of how Anthony 'Ace' Bourke and John Randall, visitors to London from Australia in 1969, bought a boisterous lioncub in the pet department of Harrods. For several months, the three of them shared a flat above a furniture shop on London's King's Road, where the charismatic & intelligent Christian quickly became a local celebrity, cruising the streets in the back of a Bentley, popping in for lunch at a local restaurant, even posing for a fasion advertisement. But the lion cub was growing up...fast. Too fast. Originally published in 1971. Updated/revised w/more than 50 b&w photos.
