Fee, the dwarf hippo, wants to take part in a beauty contest for horses, but when she gets there, Fee turns quite pale, because all the other contestants are such beautiful horses. Luckily, Tilly Trouserbutton comes up with a great idea: she simply takes away the horses’ mega-glitter-gleam oil, mane extensions and high heels, and in the blink of an eye, the pretty prancing ponies look more like old nags!

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! When Holly goes to the market with her friends, Herbert the timid aardvark’s cheese-and-mud camouflage gets noticed – and no wonder: there’s a WANTED poster of him on every corner!
And if someone notices him, he will have to go back to the zoo! So he decides he would rather hide in the secret overseas container. But that doesn’t suit Sheriff Louis and Tilly one little bit… A bit of bother surely wouldn’t harm in their opinion. Quite the opposite, in fact!”

From now on the little fairies sweeten the learning to read

At the start of every school year, the fairy school holds its fairy post party: Rosalie, Nikki and all the others in Year One learn about their future task of emptying the fairy letterbox and at the same time how to find out which of the many children’s wishes they find in the letterbox are truly matters of the heart.
