In Sally's Secret Sally finds a special place. The Runaway Train is about what happens when Duffy Driver forgets to put the brake on. The pictures in The Black and White Cat capture the joy felt in the beautiful countryside. The wind blows a little too hard when Mrs Mopple asks it to blow her washing dry. Owl mishears Rabbit when he whispers that he's having a party in The Surprise Party. (3-6 yrs) (Kirkus UK)show more
