Pangolin plays a prank is a fun new children’s picture book from author Avril van der Merwe and illustrator Heidi-Kate Greeff. We have enjoyed the other picture books from this pair, with Don’t Be Shy, Bushbaby being a particular favourite.
Pangolin stumbles into Lion one morning and she has to come up with a plan quickly to avoid being eaten. Lion doesn’t like being outsmarted, especially when Dung Beetle joins the deception and sends him away in pursuit of the clever Pangolin who is actually lying curled into a tight ball at his feet. Your children will giggle at Dung Beetle’s cunning deception, all the while learning fascinating facts about the Pangolin.
In addition to being a fun story with beautiful wild animals that your children will love to meet, Pangolin plays a prank also includes a wonderful message about friendship, acceptance and above all being there and sticking up for your friends when it matters most.
We loved reading the story, with a loud cheer of ‘again please’ from the kiddies giving this book their stamp of approval!
Pangolin plays a prank is available for a recommended retail price of R110. It’s recommended for children aged 3 to 6 years.
You can also keep an eye out for How Cheetah got his tears, I don’t want to be a Hyena, Once upon a Rhinoceros, and Don’t be shy, Bushbaby by this author/illustrator pair.
