Colour Young Puffin: Poppet

When Poppet the elephant is born, his mother warns him about nasty mice who run up elephants’ trunks. But then Poppet meets Momo – a chirpy little mouse who doesn’t seem at all interested in his trunk. Can they become friends? A charming read-alone story about dispelling superstitions and making friends against the odds, told by master writer Dick King-Smith and illustrated with delightful colour pictures.
