Lost at the Zoo
Rory the pet mouse is lost at Edinburgh Zoo. Squeeeeeak! He sniffles and snuffles, searches and stares, but he cant find his owner Sam. He comes whisker to whisker with a roooaaaring lion, and nose to horn with a friendly rhino. But will he ever be found?

'This engaging book is not only a story but a lesson in natural history.'

-- The School Librarian
'Joanne Nethercott's vibrant watercolours convey Rory's emotions and the animals' movements effectively. A story of adventure with a comforting ending!'
