It’s Oliver’s birthday, and a trip to the zoo is on hand. Right at the entrance, the family see a lollipop stand, and Oliver, as the birthday boy, is allowed to have one. He is entranced with his lollipop, its rainbow colours, its size, how good it will taste, and he is so busy looking at it that he doesn’t see the animals at all, even though little brother Louis is very excited by them. Tragedy strikes when a giraffe snaffles the lollipop and Oliver is bereft. It is Louis who saves the day by helping Oliver to see all the wonderful animals around him, and he is able to fully enjoy his special day out. A lovely story about seeing the world around us in all its glory and not being so intent on our possessions. The pictures are brilliant, full of life and colour and family love, and the whole is a delight.
