Armadillo and Hare by Jeremy Strong
David Fickling Books ISBN 9781788450287

Meet Armadillo and Hare with their Small Tales from the Big Forest. Hare loves many things including picnics on the beach and playing the tuba (with extraordinary consequences) but Armadillo's overriding passion is cheese sandwiches. Even when he paints pictures they are usually studies of - you've guessed, cheese sandwiches! In the forest they meet many other animals such as Jaguar, a beautiful beast, and Giraffe, an elegant creature. They are all delightful and add to the fun in the forest. The latest book from this best-selling author is very entertaining and is complemented by stunning illustrations. It will be enjoyed by readers young and old.
