Synopsis

A Very Strange Creature by Ronda Armitage

When Monkey finds a strange creature in the jungle he's very puzzled, and he calls the other animals to help. It doesn't have a tail for swinging, a trunk for washing, a long neck for reaching the high trees or even webbed feet for swimming. Whatever could it be? Toddlers and parents alike will love this refreshing take on the classic 'new-baby' theme. With wonderfully warm, humorous text from Ronda Armitage, author of family favourite The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. 'Perfect reading for toddlers with a new baby in the house' - Junior

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
