The Weasel Puffin Unicorn Baboon Pig Lobster Race
Set in a land of custard trampolines and chocolate submarines, James Thorp’s The Weasel Puffin Unicorn Baboon Pig Lobster Race is an eccentric and exciting children’s story that tells the tale of an unforgettable race. With clever, imaginative language and dream-like illustrations, the book takes the reader on an exuberant adventure, following fiercely competitive creatures all rather inclined to cheat in a myriad of amusing ways.
