An engaging board book for very young children, with sliding panels to reveal secret images hiding below. Babies will love moving the sliders to make a bush baby peer out from his tree trunk home, meerkats pop up from their underground burrows and a monkey swing through the trees. Brilliant for developing essential motor skills and hand-eye coordination and full of vivid colours, stylish illustrations and friendly animals.
“A delight from start to finish.”

“This chunky, colourful little board book is just the thing to develop early faculties including hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills.”
“A great, bright interactive book with super illustrations of friendly animals. The slider mechanisms transform the pictures so meerkats pop up from the underground and monkeys swing from trees. A delight from start to finish.”
