Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert. They are all very close close, in fact, that one day Sunny decides he's had enough and packs his bags. He's off to visit his mongoose cousins. But from the watery world of the Marsh Mongoose to the nocturnal lifestyle of the Malagasy Mongoose, Sunny just doesn't fit in. And who's that shadowy figure who seems to be following him around? A brilliant picture book from the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Customer reviews

Sunny the meerkat travels to a new destination each day to visit his family, followed by a predatory jackal, to see where he belongs best. Every night my daughter races to bed for story time to re-trace his journey and finds the greatest satisfaction in the jackal being bested by Sunny's loving family. A joy for her each night, and finally a book that I enjoy just as much as she does as it has some extra detail about the mongooses and their habits and lovely illustrations that add further more
