First Adventures of Fidget and Quilly by Mike Haines, David Melling

Four different adventures for our friends Fidget the racoon and Quilly the porcupine. Get muddy in 'Find a Frog', try out their new tricycle in 'Go too fast', choose your favourite sound in 'make a noise' and see how they catch a rainbow in a jam jar in 'catch rainbows'! Fidget and Quilly are the stars of the popular Count Down to Bedtime, and its equally popular sequel Are you Ready? This collection from the range of delightful board books makes the stories available in a lovely hardback gift format.
