Veronica on Petunia's Farm by Roger Duvoisin

Book Description

Veronica, the very conspicuous hippopotamus, is happy to move to Mr Pumpkin's far. There would be so many animals to gosip with! But the other animals do not return Veronica's hearty "Good morning!" And they say nasty things about her. Goat informs them that hippopotomus is a zoo name, "Therefore a foreigner," says Donkey. Aftr Veronica hides in the barn for a whole week, the animals spy on her, wasting away and looking morose. Feeling guilty, they offer her gifts to cheer her up, and when she finally joins them in the barnyard, they see the biggest smile every on Veronica's face. First published in 1962, this sequel to Caldecott Medalist Duvosin's VERONICA captures with humour and an up beat conclusion the real life dynamics a new child in school often faces

When Father, Mother, Billy, and Suzy go house hunting in the country, they fall in love with a grand old house nestled among tall weeds and trees. The house is in need of repair and soon a carpenter, mason, and tinsmith come to set things straight, but it needs new paint too.

Frog in the Well by Roger Duvoisin Frog in the Well, Hardback (April 2017)

Once upon a time there was a frog who lived at the bottom of a well. To the frog, this well where he'd lived all his life was the whole world. Then one day the well runs dry and the bugs disappear, and the hungry frog must hop to the top of the well to see what he can of the end of the world. Conquering his fear, he peers out and what does he see?

Rain Puddle by Roger Duvoisin Rain Puddle, Hardback (March 2017)

Who has fallen into the rain puddle? Is it plump hen, turkey gobbler, curly sheep or beautiful fat pig? When all the animals peer into the puddle at the same time, they see the entire farmyard underwater. This charming tale - ideal for reading out loud - captures perfectly the wonder of discovering the outside world for the first time.

Happy Hunter by Roger Duvoisin Happy Hunter, Hardback (October 2016)
