The team behind If I Had a Dragon bring us a bold, colorful look at Morton’s latest daydream—a safari! Morton is bored playing baseball all the way in the outfield. But if he were in the jungle, he could be a lion or a zebra or a hippopotamus! Yeah, if he were a jungle animal, then things would be exciting. But maybe too much excitement is too distracting! After all, a ball could be coming right toward him!
