Synopsis

Caribbean Animals by Dawne Allette

Ned sits in his tree house and surveys the world around him spotting all sorts of different local animals - from an agouti, a butterfly, a crocodile, to a zandoli. The rhyming text is full of fun and there's a little mouse in the tree building a little house of his own that small readers will delight in spotting. Illustrations are bold and realistic and there is information about each animal at the end.

Reviews

Many of the creatures will be familiar to British readers (bumble bee, rabbit, spider)
