This is a delightfully funny animal story about getting the wrong end of the stick! Welcome to Silly Safari, where we have fun all day.
Welcome to Silly Safari, we hope you enjoy your stay. Little Dudley the terrapin has heard that Joe the bear cub feels under the weather. He thinks it means he’s literally under a rain cloud and is worried about it happening to him too – so he hides in his shell.
But his friend Minnie the elephant persuades him to go and cheer Joe up. Along the way they meet grumpy (but funny) Ella the parrot and Leo the silly hippo, who add to the confusion.
It is only when they see hypochondriac Ava the giraffe and find Joe the bear in his lair that all becomes clear to Dudley.
He feels very foolish, but his friends show him that it doesn’t matter – his heart was in the right place.
This is a charming story about making mistakes and being a good friend. About the Author.
