This is the second book I've read in this series, after the Island of Animaux. And it's as good as the earlier one! Five really funny stories, covering a silly party, gluttony, a health scare and lost love. Stories for children? Well, my daughter adored it! I loved seeing her chuckle as she read, sometimes aloud, on my reader. I'm going to buy her a hard copy! This is very highly recommended. Milo writes great stories and the illustrations by Yuliya Somina are brilliantly imagined. I think a follow-up book is planned and I'll be looking out for that. A+.
