[Published by Working Title Press]
On nodding acquaintance only, Baboon, Giraffe and Hippo live busy lives co-existing but rarely speaking. (Strong parallels with modern life?) When a slinky lion hovers on the edge of their world, team-work becomes essential.
Thanks to a cunning plan from Baboon, Lion is so frightened by his encounter with a noisy multi-headed beast, he never bothers our jungle friends again.
A younger audience will love the beautifully depicted animals and hilariously scary beast. The gentle but essential message about team-work is one that could be explored further with a slightly older crew. Something for everyone!
