A silly story with a rather unrealistic ending, but is nice how the animals come to accept the lesson taught.

Both our 4yo and 2yo pick this book up every night. A bit long for the 2yo but he loves the drum pages.
the 4yo loves finding the hidden animals too

Beautiful and detailed art work. Deals with the themes of teasing and making wishes (becareful what you wish for!).

Swahili pronunciation for the animal names are given.

At the end of the story, you learn that there are things hidden in the pages just read! An invitation to reread ;-)
