Overview

Ned sits in his tree house and surveys the world around him spotting all sorts of different local animals - from an agouti, a butterfly, a crocodile, to a zandoli. The rhyming text is full of fun and there's a little mouse in the tree building a little house of his own that small readers will delight in spotting. Illustrations are bold and realistic and there is information about each animal at the end.
