In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a cold and rainy day, four little friends found a perfect place to play.
Moose had marvellous antlers and Lion, a golden mane. Zebra had fantastic stripes and Sheep . . . well, Sheep was plain.
When four friends encounter a cranky bear, Moose, Lion and Zebra all think they know how to cheer him up.
But it is plain, boring Sheep who has the answer.
Vibrant illustrations and a fun, engaging story make this book perfect for reading aloud. The sequel, The Very Itchy Bear, was published in August 2010.
