Pangolin loves playing her mandolin. There's just one problem... She's nocturnal so she's twanging her strings in the middle of the night. The other animals in the rainforest aren't happy to be kept awake. Will they reach a compromise? Starring quirky characters and stunning illustrations, this story has been specially written to develop phonemic awareness. With free online audio.
