The Lovereading4Kids comment
This cheery group of Little Adventurers will charm young readers with the fun they are having with their pets. Finnegan has brought his puppy, Licky Dog, Floss is showing off her cat Podge, Peanut’s pet is a little mouse called Pocket. Spratt, the littlest of the adventurers, has the most unusual pet of all. He has a leaf called Leafy. What on earth can a leafy do to impress Sprat’s fellow adventurers? Luckily, Leaf has plenty of surprises in store and soon the friends realise just what a special pet he can be. the Little Adventurers four will encourage hours of immersive play, and will ignite the imagination of curious adventurers everywhere. ~ Julia Eccleshare
