The Lovereading comment:
A quirky, funny picture book story about a family visit to a safari park - Michael Foreman at his best! Norman is good little boy who never tells a lie. Honest. It’s just that sometimes his parents don’t believe him. Like the time they were all staying at the safari park and came back one evening to discover that their room had been wrecked. Norman said it was the wild animals who had made all the mess. But that couldn’t be right . . . or could it?
