Product description

Abandoned by his bossy wife and children, kind-hearted old Mr Ape finds himself living all alone in his huge and rambling house. Until he has a brilliant idea: he can fill the place with animals, the pets his wife and children would never let him have. But pets have a habit of increasing, and soon every room is stuffed to the brim with donkeys, dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits – even two new human friends who need a place to stay. There’s simply no more room! Something has to change… A wonderfully funny and touching animal story from master writer Dick King-Smith.

    I like this book because there’s lots of animals in it and it’s nice how Mr Ape has them all living in his house.
