Young children will love this very bold and bright picture book, with its easy-to-lift flaps and humourous rhyming text about the ‘zoopermarket’, where the food is not all it seems!
Told in lively comic-strip style, this book relates eleven action-packed tales about Robin and his merry men. The highlyillustrated, colourful stories keep less keen or confident readers engaged.
