Tom and Sophie Nightingale live on a barge with their zookeeper dad and vet mum, and as many animals as you can get on a small boat. Surely there’s no room for any MORE animals in their life? But then there’s a bat in peril, an owl on the prowl and an outbreak of night-terrors for the zoo’s nocturnal residents. Tom and Sophie must stage a moonlit vigil to discover what’s going on!
An animal-packed caper written with the help of the brilliant team at London Zoo.
An animal-packed zoo caper featuring the Nightingale family: Tom, Sophie, zookeeper dad and vet mum. With stacks of behind-the-scenes peeks at London Zoo!
