Product description

Norris loves plorringes! When he spots one ripening in the afternoon sun, he sits back and patiently waits for the fruit to drop from the tree into his paws. But Norris isn't the only one who adores plorringes ...pesky Tulip and Violet love them too and they can't wait for the one in the tree to ripen, so they scamper up the branch to investigate. So who will get their paws on the delicious fruit first? This beautifully written tale explores themes of friendship, patience and sharing, as well as teaching the five senses.
