In a luscious, vibrant picture book, young listeners can hear of how Maggie, a beautifully-dressed doll, Mango, a careful bear, and Scottie, a Scottie with shades, all go off for a day in “Deepest Africa”. There, with plenty of sound words to liven the reading, they encounter much well-illustrated wildlife and the King of a zillion zebras. One nervous moment – but doesn’t last too long! In all, a most pleasurable, informing and reassuring story with super bright pictures. Nature notes at the back.
