    Children will be excited to meet Wiggle and the Whale, Charlie the Champ and Pip the little penguin in this three-book collection that will inspire their imaginations and teach them moral values.

    Written in engaging, rhyming text, these books are fun to read aloud and share. The unique artwork style (which makes use of fingerprint pictures and photographs of everyday items to complete the characters) makes them extra appealing. There are so many things for children to spot throughout all the spreads.

    Wiggle the jellyfish and his best friend Whale are very different but this doesn't matter. What's important is they are there for each other and enjoy each other's company; Charlie the Champ is an underdog competing in the Safari Games. She's pleasantly surprised when she wins the 'Best All-rounder Prize'; and Pip the Little Penguin learns all about different animals and their various colours. He soon learns how vital it is to accept who you are.
