About the book (for ages 6+)

This is the third book in the charming illustrated series all about Mango Allsorts and Bambang. Mango is a girl good at all sorts of things, and Bambang is a curious, courageous tapir, and her best friend.

In Tiny Tapir Trouble, the duo's adventures continue. When a small but mischievous tapir guest comes to stay with Mango and Bambang in the busy city, things soon get into a rather troublesome tangle.

The series' fun stories of friendship and mayhem have been described by The Sunday Times as having 'real charm... reminiscent of Paddington'. Each book has four beautifully illustrated tales for you to enjoy, just the right length for snuggling down with at bedtime!
