5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely bedtime story 23 April 2012
Format:Paperback
A beautifully illustrated bedtime story for the little ones - I particularly like the fact that it's a true story, it'd be nice to follow it up with a trip to the zoo where it really happened!

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming 26 April 2012
By Pat B
Format:Paperback
what a charming book and wonderful illustrations. Made better by the fact that the story is based on a true story that took place at Paington Zoo in Devon.
The beautiful illustrations are so detailed and life-like. Will be re-telling this story to the younger siblings in my family for sure.
