The Terrible Greedy Fossifoo by Charles Fuge


The Terrible Greedy Fossifoo by Charles Fuge

When the terrible greedy Fossifoo clatters into the Great Green Forest, it spells TROUBLE! He tears up ALL the trees, eats ALL the fruit and berries, and frightens away ALL the forest creatures. All alone in the empty forest, the Fosifoo soon feels sorry for all his bashing and crashing. But will he be able to change his ways and make the forest beautiful again before it's too late? A stomping story about caring for the environment and each other.
