Product description

While the grown-ups of the meerkat clan are out looking for food, young pup Jack and his brothers and sisters are always left with a babysitter. Their favourite is eccentric Uncle Fearless – the best one by far! He might be a bit of a show-off, but he tells amazing stories from the time when he travelled to the Blah-Blah camp at the edge of the desert. All the meerkat pups love his colourful stories, even if they don’t really believe them. But then they find a mysterious object buried in the sand… and it isn’t long before they’re caught up in a daring adventure of their own!

A hilarious story about an endearing family of meerkats from the brilliant Ian Whybrow, author of Harry and the Dinosaurs and the Little Wolf books.
