About this deal
and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy , Old Hat, Cyril and Pat and Meerkat Christmas . Sunny the Meerkat lives in the Kalahari desert but one day Sunny decides to pack his bags and visit his mongoose cousins. With seven giant glossy postcards attached to the pages, this beautiful book is rich with comic detail and will keep any child entertained for hours. Together they imitate and then imagine visiting a string of real animals, from penguins to kangaroos, whose glorious images fill the pages.
Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves , which has been followed by such modern classics as Meerkat Mail , Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears , Monkey and Me and Again! Meerkat Mail is a brilliant picture book from Emily Gravett, the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal. It has wonderfully detailed, witty artwork and a giant, glossy postcard flap to lift on every spread. But from the watery world of the Marsh Mongoose to the nocturnal lifestyle of the Malagasy Mongoose, Sunny just doesn’t fit in.
Emily Gravett is a graduate of Brighton University and winner of the 2004 Macmillan Prize for Illustration.
He journeys through rain and shine and light and dark, reporting back to his family via a series of postcards. And what I love as well as a parent is that the book teaches about the importance of keeping in touch with the wider family as well as how great it is to go traveling but always come back home.Sunny lives on an arid plain with his extensive and loving meerkat family; they work together, play together and together do their best to stay away from jackals!
