Product Description

Details

Rory the pet mouse goes on a trip to Edinburgh Zoo in Sam's pocket. He leans out to get a better look and falls into the anteater's enclosure. How will wee Rory ever find Sam again in the enormous zoo? 'Have you seen Sam?' Rory asks, and tries to describe his owner. He tells the zebra Sam's got sticky-out sandy hair, and gets sent to the lion! He tells the lion Sam's got big round eyes, and gets sent to the owl! Rory meets lots of animals -- a helpful anteater, a polite zebra, a grumpy lion, a hungry owl, a friendly rhino, the elegant flamingos and the blethering penguins, who take him along on their penguin parade. But will he ever find Sam?This charming zoo story, full of wonderful animal characters, is beautifully illustrated by talented young artist, Joanne Nethercott.
