If your little one is feeling under the weather then this funny book about an unusual doctor and his patients may be just the thing to cheer them up.
When the animals at his zoo start to fall ill, the zookeeper decides to call the local doctor – Dr Duck! When he arrives he discovers a porcupine who has sneezed so much that all her spines have shot out, a giraffe with a stiff neck, a snake with a high temperature, a mildly depressed hyena and a gorilla with wind. Dr Duck’s cures are unconventional to say the least but they seem to work and soon everyone is feeling better and relaxing in the hot tub.
Everyone that is except the poor farting gorilla. Dr Duck had prescribed some large pants with extra strong elastic to trap the smell of his stinky bottom burps – but the knickers have blown up like a balloon and the gorilla has floated off in to the sky. Can the ingenious doctor find a way to bring him back to earth before its too late?
Poor Gary the Gorilla. He absolutely loves bananas but one day he discovers that there are no more left. What on earth is he going to do? But Gary doesn’t panic. He puts on his hat and heads out to try and find some.
Fortunately he spots some of his favourite fruit right outside his house – what luck! But no. Poor Gary realises he is hallucinating when the ‘bananas’ start to woof. He walks all around the town seeing ‘bananas’ everywhere he goes – but there isn’t a single real banana in sight!
Eventually he bumps in to a giant banana which turns out to be a rocket and when he looks up he sees what looks like a banana in the night sky. He hops in the rocket and heads for the stars. Is it possible that he could find bananas in space?
