Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari desert. They are all very close . . . so 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.

About Emily Gravett

Emily Gravett has a rare talent indeed for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two CILIP Kate Greenaway Medals, her skill and wit are second to none. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves in 2005, which has been followed by such modern classics as Meerkat Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and Again! and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family.

Our 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
