Pandamonium At Peek Zoo by Kevin Waldron Accident-prone zookeeper Mr Peek causes chaos when a parade is planned for a baby panda.
 4 of 12 


Conquering a fear of the dark is the mission for brave Laszlo in The Dark by Lemony Snicket (Orchard, £11.99), while Hugh Shampoo (Oxford University Press, £11.99) simply hates having his hair washed and brushed – a real problem when your parents are hairdressers. When there is a family emergency in this witty Karen George tale, Hugh’s dirty locks come to the rescue. Things don’t work out so well for mucky Farmer Tanner in We Have Lift Off! by Sean Taylor (Frances Lincoln, £11.99). After polluting his farm and mistreating his animals, they stage a rebellion and build a space rocket to take them away from the squalor into the clean, clear skies. There’s further creature chaos in Kevin Waldron’s Pandamonium At Peek Zoo (Templar, £10.99), when a parade is planned to celebrate the birth of a baby panda. But when the big day actually arrives, has the accident-prone zookeeper Mr Peekfinally gone one gaffe too far?
