Mango and Bambang reach for the stars in the fourth book of this charming illustrated series about a little girl and a tapir, described by The Sunday Times as having “real charm … reminiscent of Paddington". Both Mango and Bambang are left star-struck when Bambang's cousin comes to town with Hollywood actress Minty Verbena. But when disaster strikes, Bambang is the true star of the show. Superstar Tapir is Book Four in this delightful series for younger readers.

  • A beautiful and high-quality hardback gift-book, with coloured page edges and foiled cover.
  • A wonderful collaboration between an incredibly talented illustrator and writer, both from famous literary families. Clara Vulliamy is the daughter of Shirley Hughes and Polly Faber is from the Faber & Faber family.
  • A classic with a contemporary edge, and recalls childhood favourites like Paddington and The Hundred and One Dalmatians. Described by The Huffington Post as "a modern classic".
