Zoe Gets the Jitters!
By Kes Gray
Illustrated by Mary Mcquillan
Hodder Children's Books welcomes a wonderful, vibrant new set of characters to our list - the Get Well Friends.
It was a beautiful day in Africa. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and all the zebras were peacefully eating their lunch. All except for Zoe who is so busy looking out for big, scary animals that she doesn't look where she is going and trips up over a teeny-tiny tortoise! But don't worry, with a little help from Nurse Nibbles and her Get Well Friends, she'll soon be feeling better.
Get Well Friends' toys and books have real play and care values. Each loveable character comes not only with a name, but an instant personality and a humorous story to tell. Each book contains over 50 stickers.
'A vibrant new set of animal characters. These are stories told with humour, but with a real sense of empathy and understanding.' - The Guardian
