The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is bright, cheery picture book has a positive and reassuring message for young children. Little Miki the meerkat needs to be tempted out of their burrow by his mother, but finds the outside world light and exciting; it’s a bit frightening too but the keeper takes good care of them. When Miki does dare to leave his enclosure he discovers that the world is full of legs! It’s overwhelming until he spots legs he recognises – those of the friendly keeper, who takes him back to the comfort and safety of home. It’s a satisfying story that will reassure children who worry about, or have experience of being lost, and meerkat Miki is a very sweet hero. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Legs The Tale of a Meerkat Lost and Found by Sarah J. Dodd

Miki is a baby meerkat who lives with his Mama in a zoo. He's happy at home with Mama and the kind keeper who cares for them, but soon he becomes curious about the wider world. Then one day Miki ventures a bit too far out into the world, and he's not sure where he is anymore. Who do all these legs belong to? Soon the legs turn from animal legs to people legs - Miki really has gone too far! But just when Miki feels completely lost, there are the keepers familiar booted legs, and here's the keeper to bring him home; and from his vantage point in the keeper's arms all the legs that seemed so intimidating on the way out are revealed to have friendly, happy faces with them!
