This is the most exciting story yet, as you work through the series the children get to know the children better and better. They also form a series of favourite memorable personalities and characters in each story and are excited when they reappear.
Simply read the series to the children one at a time and enjoy the values you see them absorbing. In this story there is an interesting and positive focus on learning and teachers that really care.
Don't miss the 'nose' and the snails in this magical story!
The large spotted creature is inimitable. Invest in this story or you will never meet it! Enjoy!
