From the publisher:
Bertie The Bee
Robin went to the car-boot sale to buy something which could fly, something like an aeroplane or a helicopter. He did not imagine that he would go home with something which could fly and make honey as well! He soon learned so much about bees that he was really glad that he had bought Bertie.
Carla The Cow
When Robin bought Carla the Cow from Petes Treats stall at the car-boot sale, he was warned that she was moody and selfish but he bought her anyway. He soon found out that the other cows did not like her, but when she realised this, she made a real effort to fit in with the herd but how did she do it?
Carlos The Cod
Although most fish live in big shoals do they all have to do the same things? And is that such a good idea? Have you ever wondered what fish do in a big aquarium? Well Carlos the cod told Robin that they watch people. And what a funny lot those people are and what strange habits they have!
Clarence The Camel
Camels were unusual on the car-boot sale and fortunately, Robin could afford to buy Clarence, but Clarence was not the perfect Camel. In fact, at first he thought that he was swift and a bit too clever. It took a hard lesson in life to learn what grown-ups call "humility" but learning that lesson brought him a great reward!
Before Robin first chose Donkey Hoo-Tee he could not imagine what life was like for a donkey on the Plains of Spain. Well he soon found out that it was very hard work! That was until he won something that would change his life forever, but it took a very special man to help him do it. How strange that they both had the same name!
Gavin The Gorilla and Snuffles
Robin did not know much about Gorillas until he bought Gavin. He thought that they were all about chest-thumping and making loud noises. He thought they were fierce and scary and that little dogs like Snuffles were cute and cuddly. He soon found out that this was not always so. When Gavin the Gorilla was being picked on, who do you think came to the rescue?
Geraldo The Giraffe
Geraldo was another great buy for Robin he had a very interesting story to tell and a great explanation about giraffes and sore throats. He was also getting bored with his simple diet of leaves so he tried an experiment with people food. That brought its own problems but what happened helped Robins's friend Caroline with her own difficulties!
Leon The Lion
When Robin bought Leon the Lion from the car-boot sale, he expected him to be fierce and scary but that could not have been further from the truth. Just how did the King of the Jungle turn into the King of the Jingle? Well you will have to read the book to find out!
Roger The Reindeer
When Roger started to tell Robin and Grandad his story, he admitted that he had problems with reading. So he never bothered to read labels. That was alright until he left home and then the trouble started. After his problems with giant rhubarb, he became determined to learn to read properly and that landed him the best Reindeer job of all!
Taffy The Rabbit
Taffy was a Welsh rabbit and can you guess what his favourite sport was? Yes that's right, it was Rugby. It was his ambition in life to watch Wales play England but how could he ever save up enough to buy the ticket? What Robin learned from Taffy really helped his scout group, but how?
