From the back cover:-
'Little Ellie has a scheme to keep the whole zoo squeaky clean!
But do the animals want to be clean, Ellie?'
32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages with clear, easy-to-follow text.
Beautifully illustrated in vibrant colours throughout, this delightful book is further enhanced by meaningful facial expressions, simple words in speech bubbles and that rhyming element!
Example of text:-
'Little Ellie has a scheme
to keep the whole zoo squeaky clean.
Watch out animals, big and small!
Here she comes to squirt you all!
When Ellie turns her trunk to spray,
Three tiny mice are washed away.....
Eek!, eek! Eek!.....'
....and eek! is certainly the relevant word as all the animals express their displeasure and Ellie turns her spray to a more appropriate use?
