Then one day he gets into very hot water indeed and Zoe must use all her prowess with animals to help it. The fifth fabulous story in this series featuring a go-getting central character, talking animals, compelling story lines and evocative illustrations, this is PERFECT for animal-mad 5+ year olds. Here’s a look inside:
