Beachmoles and Bellvine

By Mick Inkpen

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

On one of those days when the sky is half full of big fluffy clouds, look to the left of the sun and there, if you are lucky, you will see a place called Blue Nose Island - where all the creatures have blue noses.

Ploo decides to plant some bellvine outside his house and Dig goes to search for beachmoles on Blue Nose Beach. But nothing is as simple as it seems on the magical island where they all have blue noses!
