Happy! by Caroline Castle


Happy! by Caroline Castle

The sun is up, the sky is blue and Little Zeb is as happy as a lark in springtime. He's off to the water hole to meet his best friend Little Hippo for some tip-top playing. Trouble is that Little Hippo isn't there. Little Zeb waits and waits, but soon the sun is high in the sky and there is no sign of his friend. Little Zeb is definitely not happy playing on his own. Even the jolly new words he learned that morning don't cheer him up. But they are just the thing for someone waiting round the corner - someone full of beans and ready for fun.
