The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliant rendition played out by some absolutely delightful animals on how not to behave. Sheep, goose and others behave badly whilst rabbit gets angry when everyone seem unable to behave at all.

As ever, there’s a moral to the story - and a important one at that.


Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose by Julia Donaldson

"Chocolate mousse!", says greedy Goose. "Don't just grab it," says angry Rabbit. Good manners aren't on the menu at this meal. Duck won't eat his carrots. Moth's eating the cloth, and Sheep would rather sleep than wash the dishes. Thank goodness some of the animals know how to behave!


Sharratt s trademark illustrations are bound to captivate readers.
