What a wonderfully charming book. This beautifully illustrated story takes you along for a joyful trip through the hustle and bustle of modern day London, an everyday trip to the zoo turns into a magical adventure when a little boy unwittingly manages to liberate a family of young possums from the zoo and finds them trailing him back home for tea in the garden. I love this book and have bought it for all my animal loving little cousins and nieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect holiday read, 13 Aug 2013
In a mad pre-holiday dash, I grabbed this book off the shelf because of the lovely cover. I took it to Greece and sailed around the islands with it. It was absolutely wonderful , the writing is beautifully natural and elegant and transports you to a magical , hope restoring place where wondrous things happen. A perfect book to keep beside you when you feel that everything is just a little bit dull. It is humane, colourful, alive and never sentimental.
A book about how sometimes, running away is the only way back home.
