Absolutely beautiful! First of all, the illustrations are superb. They are bright, colourful and draw the eye wonderfully. They help to tell the story well and I adored them. The animals all came to life through the vibrancy and lines of the illustrations.
Now to the story. I read this book with three hats on. First, my mum hat, second my primary school teacher hat and finally my bibliophile hat. This book ticked every single box. It was written well, using simple enough but engaging language. It made you want to turn the page to see what was going to happen next. It made you think about possible scenarios, for example what sorts of things might other animals be asked to do? And most importantly, it ended with a big happy smile on my face and a little chuckle.
This is definitely a book I would read to my children and also to my class. I love the fact that some of the proceeds go to helping literacy in the Caribbean as well.

What are the animals to do when the mango tree with the tastiest mangoes in the forest starts talking? The tree makes each animal perform before they can pick a mango. But who ever heard of a talking mango tree? Finally, Papa Bois, protector of animals and forests, comes to the rescue to uncover this mystery.
Humor, compassion and forgiveness in one fun story.

I loved seeing the various animals performing their requested actions and the way in which they all came together at the end. Full review
