A laugh-out-loud animal adventure, ideal for children practising their reading at home or in school. Alfie the meerkat is fed up of doing what he's told. Life should be more than about digging holes and standing on guard duty. He wants adventure and excitement, not babysitting duty! So when a film crew for a nature programme arrives in the desert, Alfie decides to take action. Is this his chance to become a star? This show-stopping adventure from award-winning author Karen Wallace (author of the Alice the Anteater series) is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. Features engaging illustrations by Ellie O'Shea and quirky characters young readers will find hard to resist. Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories. 'Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation.' (Julie-Ann McCulloch, Teacher) Book band: White Quizzed for Accelerated Reader Ideal for ages: 6+
