Who Woke the Animals? Summary

Who Woke the Animals? by David Conway

One night in the Silly Savannah a ludicrous Leopard is leapfrogging to bed and a hat-wearing Hyena is half asleep when all of a sudden there is a terrible racket! The animals decide to follow the noise, but they are in for a big surprise - a tiny shrew and her snoring. She is rudely awakened, only for the animals to slump into a heap fast asleep and start their own snuffling and snoring. Time for Shrew to get her own back.

'Giggle-inducing. Conway's tale is well-crafted.' - Kirkus Review

'This wildlife trail unfolds in a romp that's brightly coloured with plenty to spot and laugh at.' - Junior Magazine
