Synopsis

Help Me! by Paul Geraghty

It is night time, and a herd of elephants are on the move. An impala is lying in the darkness, watching a tortoise stumble towards water. Hatchling turtles slip into the pool while crocodiles sleep. A pack of wild dogs trot by. When the tortoise slips, a surprising and remarkable chain of events begins to unfold...

Reviews

Paul Geraghty is an artist who never puts a foot wrong. Bookseller Beautifully told and vibrantly illustrated, this story is a terrific educational tool. EYE The illustrations vividly reflect the nature of the animals, particularly at moments of high tension. Armadillo Magazine The African savannah is full of majesty and danger. Both are beautifully captured here, and kids will relish the unexpectedly happy turn of events, based on documented animal behaviour. Angels and Urchins Luminous almost photographic artwork scenes capture the heat and stillness of the African plain. A simple and striking introduction to animal behaviour in story form. Books For Keeps
