It’s Noko’s birthday and Takadu is organizing a surprise fig party for his porcupine pal. All the animals are invited — Mrs. Warthog, Bat-eared Fox, Vervet Monkey, Guineafowl, and Pangolin. All, that is, except Hyena, whose manners are simply too disgusting. But when jealous Hyena steals all the figs that Takadu has lovingly gathered, it looks like the party will be ruined. . . or will it? Fiona Moodie’s playful illustrations and witty text combine for a funny and satisfying story, one that’s perfect for reading aloud.
