You'll love Harvey - the busiest beaver in the world! Harvey has a new cupboard. "What will you put in it?" asks Chip. Harvey doesn't know but anyway it has to be painted first. "What colour shall we paint it?" asks Chip. Harvey doesn't know that either! "Let's paint it with lots of different colours!" says Chip. And so they do, with Chip becoming very messy and colourful himself along the way. Young readers will enjoy following Harvey and Chip's progress as the cupboard is transformed, and learning the practical details of basic decorating along the way. And the solution of what to put in it is very satisfying indeed! At the end of the book, there are step-by-step instructions for doing your own decorating and a colour mixing chart as well.show more
