Good manners aren't on the menu at this meal. Duck won't eat his carrots. Moth's eating the cloth, and Sheep would rather sleep than wash the dishes. Thank goodness some of the animals know how to behave. Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly animal antics in this book -- you've never been to a dinner party like it! Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms are perfect to read aloud, and Nick Sharratt's mischievous and funny illustrations make this bright and playful book a sure winner. Just right for toddlers! Look out for: Hippo Has A Hat, Animal Music, Toddle Waddle and Goat Goes To Playgroup.
"Chocolate mousse!" says greedy Goose. "Don't just grab it," says angry Rabbit.
Sharratt's trademark illustrations are bound to captivate readers. Junior
