Little Lou and the Woolly Mammoth by Paula Bowles


Little Lou and the Woolly Mammoth by Paula Bowles

When Little Lou finds a wriggly, squiggly piece of wool amongst a pile of toys, she curiously gives it a tug. But - what's this? The wool tugs back - there's something at the other end! And as Little Lou follows the wool, she realises that it's attached to ...A giant woolly mammoth! Quick, RUN! But soon the woolly mammoth gets snagged, and he starts to get smaller ...And smaller ...And smaller. In fact, he is so small that he doesn't really seem so scary anymore - he's just the right size for a cuddle! A charming tale of fear, friendship and not judging a book by it's cover, beautifully illustrated by Paula Bowles.
