What Does An Anteater Eat?

Author: Ross Collins Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/06/2018

Anteater is hungry, but he has completely forgotten what anteaters eat. Baffled and with his tummy rumbling, he consults the other animals.

A delightfully silly tale that little ones will return to again and again.

This Zoo is Not for You

This Zoo is Not for You

Author: Ross Collins Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/05/2018

When a small platypus visits the zoo, the animals all assume he has come about the vacancy and he is swiftly taken through a rigorous interview process. But the platypus is far too bland for the chameleons, not nearly graceful enough for the flamingos, and his tricks will never impress the monkeys. So, he leaves. The animals soon regret being so unkind, but . . . what's this? The platypus has left an invitation! Oh dear - it seems he had actually come to the zoo to invite them all to his party. Uh-oh! But with all forgiven and forgotten, the platypus welcomes his new zoo friends to a fantastic party on his Platypus! This rollicking rhyming picture book, from the award-winning creator of There's a Bear on My Chair, combines comic misunderstandings with a heartfelt story about acceptance and belonging. There's a touch of Tim Minchin about Collins . . . his tone is funny but heartfelt and a little bit rock'n'roll - Guardian
