A charming and heart-warming story from Giles Andreae, creator of Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton.
The Pink Cricket
Two things are true about crickets: they are GREEN and they play the VIOLIN. So when one cricket said he was a DRUMMER, all the other crickets LAUGHED. (He was also PINK.) "Crickets can no more play the drums than FISH can play football . . . PINKY!" they jeered. And so begins a story about FOLLOWING your DREAMS – a joyous little treasure for the whole family to share. World of Happy . . . because life is FUN!
Giles Andreae’s World of Happy series is more joyful and anarchic than anything you have ever read before. The Pink Cricket contains the same playful, quirky sense of humour that made Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton global brands.
