Synopsis

From award-winning picture book funny-man Russell Ayto comes this laugh-out-loud tale of friendship and acceptance.
Bush Baby is so lonely – nobody wants to be her friend. Giraffe thinks she’s too small. She’s not pink enough for Flamingo. Lion, however, thinks she is just right to be his friend. And he’d never be so rude as to eat a friend. Is Bush Baby very brave, very foolish, or just very, very lonely?
