A Useful book about Families. A brilliant picture book from the winner of the Kate Greenway Medal. Meerkat Mail is a delightful tale of Sunny the Meerkat who lives in the Kalahari Desert. Bored with his life he goes off to seek adventure but things don’t go quite to plan until… You must read it to find out.
Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett
Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert. They are all very close ...so close, in fact, that one day Sunny decides he's had enough and packs his bags. He's off to visit his mongoose cousins. But from the watery world of the Marsh Mongoose to the nocturnal lifestyle of the Malagasy Mongoose, Sunny just doesn't fit in. And who's that shadowy figure who seems to be following him around? There's so much to enjoy, from the newspaper cuttings on the endpapers to the wittily accurate information about each mongoose species Sunny visits on his journey.
With seven giant glossy postcards attached to the pages, this beautiful book is rich with comic detail and will keep any meerkat fan entertained for hours.
First published in 2006, this brilliant picture book from the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal has an eyecatching new cover, wonderfully detailed, witty artwork and a giant, glossy postcard flap to lift on every spread. Perfect for meerkat fans!
