Dudley's Muddley Day (A Silly Safari Book) by Gabriele Antonini
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Dudley the terrapin has heard that Joe the bear cub feels under the weather. He thinks it means he's literally under a rain cloud and is worried about it happening to him too - so he hides in his shell. This is a delightfully funny animal story about getting the wrong end of the stick- a charming tale about making mistakes and being a good friend.

Synopsis

Dudley's Muddley Day (A Silly Safari Book) by Gabriele Antonini

Welcome to Silly Safari, where we have fun all day. Welcome to Silly Safari, we hope you enjoy your stay. Little Dudley the terrapin has heard that Joe the bear cub feels under the weather. He thinks it means he's literally under a rain cloud and is worried about it happening to him too - so he hides in his shell. But his friend Minnie the elephant persuades him to go and cheer Joe up. Along the way they meet grumpy (but funny) Ella the parrot and Leo the silly hippo, who add to the confusion. It is only when they see hypochondriac Ava the giraffe and find Joe the bear in his lair that all becomes clear to Dudley. He feels very foolish, but his friends show him that it doesn't matter - his heart was in the right place.

About the Author

Josh Webb has always loved animals, and he lives on a farm in Sussex. He has llamas, cows, horses, sheep and pigs, as well as two cats and three dogs. Unfortunately, he has never caught them talking to each other, but he knows that they do when he's not around... Josh would love to live in a safari park, and Silly Safari is his way of imagining what happens in them. Gabriele Antonini has illustrated some Reading Corner Phonic books and several young fiction titles, such as The Hungry Little Monkey and Who Ate All the Pies? This is his first Banana.
