No Room for Napoleon by Adria Meserve


No Room for Napoleon by Adria Meserve

Napoleon is a small brown dog with very big ideas. One day, he lands on a beautiful paradise island. Crab, Bunny and Bear can't wait to share their island home with their new friend. They are generous and kind and welcoming. But Napoleon has big visions for his future - he's going t build himself a huge house with a great ocean view. Before they know it, Napoleon uses up everything on the island, bosses the friends about and eats all their food! Soon, 'King' Napoleon finds himself alone and must think hard about the meaning of community and sharing before he can be considered a friend again.


A lovely story about learning to share and value what is around you ... A meaningful but fun read with a charming twist Junior
