Good things come in strange packages

Boa's friends aren't the best birthday gift-givers: Orangutan brings him a piano that Boa, with his lack of fingers, can't play, Monkey gifts him a pair of sunglasses that slip off his face, seeing as though he has no ears or nose, and Sloth thinks he'll appreciate a hairbrush. Things go from bad to worse when Dung Beetle arrives, bearing... well, what do you think?
This is a quick and clever little read about how the best gifts sometimes arrive in the least expected ways. Author Jeanne Ross and illustrator Tony Willis are frequent collaborators, and if you like this book there are a lot more for you at CADL, all just as wise and funny as this one.
