The welcome return of Oliver and Patch - this time with Ruby and a lost baby penguin too! Everyone fell in love with these special characters in Oliver and Patch, finding their way in a big city and making new friends. In this story the three friends visit the zoo. They growl at the tigers, smile at the meerkats and laugh at the funny penguins. But when Peep, a little penguin who's new to the zoo, goes missing, the friends must set off together to bring him home. But it isn't always easy to agree on a plan, and the friends have to overcome some disagreements before everything works out. Another heartwarming tale of friendship and working as a team from the wonderful picture book partnership of Claire Freedman (author of the ALIENS LOVE UNDERPANTS series) and the brilliant Kate Hindley.
