The peace of the night forest, with its star-sprinkled purple sky, is shattered by Aardvark's awful snoring. Spurred on by Mongoose, all the animals co-operate in an effort to put a stop to the row; however, it's not lion's roar or rhino's brawn that brings night-time peace. Instead, the tiny termites finally provide the solution and Aardvark changes his habits and becomes a nocturnal animal. Adrienne Kennaway's animal illustrations are superb. The unusual viewpoints and close-ups of the animals make them all the more dramatic, and the yellows, browns and purples convey the sultry atmosphere of the African setting.
