Uncle is bringing up three young Meerkat kits in a burrow. A born raconteur who cannot resist the chance to tell his charges a story, the kits are devoted to him. But how about the rest of the family? How will they react when the kits are brought out to meet them? Not very well, as it happens… and is their faith in their Uncle intact? Well, let’s say an element of doubt creeps in – but throughout the adventures that befall them, the stronger elements of affection and trust keep them together. And that’s not to mention the appearance of a squeaky toy and various other mysterious items, one of which even releases a foul stream of brown liquid into the atmosphere. Never at a loss for interpreting the world through Meerkat eyes, the Meerkat kits and their uncle bumble through a succession of adventures some amusing and some dangerous until they find an ideal place to live and Uncle’s stories are finally put to the test. An amusing but overlong book which will appeal to readers who have developed reading stamina but still retain a taste for simple but unsophisticated humour.
