I Totally Don't Want to Play

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Hugo the hippo is looking forward to spending time skating with his friend, Bella, but Bella has made plans with her new friend, Cressida. Hugo is unimpressed, especially when his idea of fun is not the same as theirs.

As the three spend time together, each experiences being the 'odd one out' until finally they reach the conclusion that being a threesome needs to be worked at but is ultimately lots of fun.

Most youngsters will relate to the ambivalence that can result from the beginning of new friendships so this reassuring tale, complemented by bright and distinctive illustrations, is ideal for sharing with individuals or groups.
