"Go Tell It to the Toucan" by Colin West
Join the jungle fun in this series of delightfully simple and surprising tales for early readers. It's Jumbo the elephant's birthday - and what better way to celebrate than by having a jungle jamboree? All Jumbo has to do is tell the toucan and he'll tell everybody else. But where is the toucan? Jumbo can't find him, and nor can the tiger, the warthog, the hippo ... or anyone else! This lively, repetitive text builds up to a very satisfying twist in the tale, which is guaranteed to tickle even the most reluctant reader. Great fun to read aloud, this funny jungle story is perfect for younger readers developing their confidence.
