Join the loveably lively Zoe and her devoted dog Beans in a world full of fun, friendship and magical adventures. It's a case of hide and seek as Beans loses his favourite toy.

There's now a delightful new adventure about Zoe and Beans, called The Magic Hoop. Click here to see this title.


Zoe and Beans: Where is Binky Boo? by Chloe Inkpen, Mick Inkpen

Zoe loves her doll Molly, but so does her dog, Beans. It's become a bit of a problem. And it all began when Beans lost his favourite toy, Binky Boo. Will Zoe and Beans ever find him? Let's hope so, because Beans won't give up the doll until they do, and poor Molly isn't meant to be a dog's toy. She's getting very stinky!
