Rampage in Prince's Garden
Publisher: Orion Children's Books
The animals of Buffin Street have always wanted to see Prince's secret garden. One day, Prince goes out and leaves the gate open. Fang leads the dogs, cats, rabbits, mice and even Do-Re-Mi the parrot into animal paradise - a pond with goldfish, piles of neatly raked leaves and freshly-dug flowerbeds. Not to mention a perfect lawn.
The animals have a wonderful time playing games, digging tunnels and hiding bones, until they realise the garden is far from perfect. 'Many paws make short work,' barks Fang and the animals do the best they can to restore the garden. Will Prince notice when he returns?
Colourful and comical illustrations accompany this entertaining tale of four-legged mayhem, perfect for new readers.
