Gracie Grabbit and the Tiger by Helen Stephens

Gracie Grabbit is going to the zoo with her dad, but she has one problem - her dad's a cheeky robber! She needs to stop him spoiling her day, but how? Luckily, a friendly tiger is on hand to help out - with lots of fun and mix-ups along the way. Painted in Helen's much-loved retro style, and introducing a brand new cast of characters, GRACIE GRABBIT AND THE TIGER is the exciting new picture book from award-winning author/illustrator Helen Stephens.
