The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out
Otto is a penguin chick. He likes to play in the snow. But first he'll teach the other chicks all they need to know. Another heart-warming story from this popular author.
The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up
Pongo is a young, mischievous gorilla living in the mountains of Africa. He wants to grow up to be brave and clever like his dad, and perhaps even become leader of the pack one day. But it is not until his little sister is born that Pongo discovers that growing up isn't just about having a big chest to thump.
The Otter Who Wanted to Know
Pat is an adorable little sea otter. She likes turning up her toes and floating in the sea, chasing fish and asking a hundred and one questions. One day Pat's quiet life is turned upside down when she gets caught up in a pretty scary adventure.
The Cat Who Wanted to Go Home
Suzy is a little striped cat, who lives in a French seaside village with a fisherman and his four sons. Like all cats, Suzy is very inquisitive, which causes problems when she climbs into the basket of a hot air balloon.
The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up
Hilda is a small, speckled hen. And when Hilda makes up her mind, nothing can stop her. Hilda's auntie has just had a family of chicks, and she's determined to visit them. But how is Hilda going to travel the five miles to her auntie's farm?
The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark
Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing--he is afraid of the dark. "Dark is nasty" he says and so he won't go hunting with his parents. Mrs. Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope, and a black cat who takes him exploring. He realizes that through these encounters that dark is super after all.
The Aardvark Who Wasn't Sure
Pim is a baby Aardvark, with a long, furry nose. He has tiny little claws instead of fingers and toes. Join Pim as he discovers exactly what it means to be an Aardvark. Another heart-warminhg story from Jill Tomlinson.
