Enjoy all the animals' colours - but watch out for spider Jack leaping out with his black legs!
Show us your tail, Foxy Fred!
Here it is, look it's RED!

From duck's brown feathers to donkey's white teeth, from macaw's purple feathers to fish's yellow fins, each animal has a special colour to show off. But what happens when spider Jack waggles his legs? They're very long and very black... will you run away and not come back?

Featuring a surprise pop-out at the end, with rounded corners and sturdy pages perfect for tiny hands, this rhythmic, rhyming text combined with gorgeous simple artwork will have little ones laughing with joy.

I like all the bright colours in this book and enjoy touching the pages with the animals on, especially the sea horse. But my favourite bit is the big pop out spider at the end! I like their big eyes and the way their legs move up and down.
