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

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
