Synopsis: A charming collection of four beautifully illustrated stories about the unlikely friendship between Mango, a little girl, and Bambang, an Asian tapir.

Mango Allsorts is good at all sorts of things, not just karate and chess. Bambang is most definitely not-a-pig and is now lost in a very busy city. When the two unexpectedly meet, a friendship begins, filled with adventures, and of course, plenty of banana pancakes.

Mini review: This if one of my 2015 reading gems.

Bambang is a tapir that has become quite lost and is holding up traffic in the big city that Mango lives. She rescues him and brings him home. Together they explore the city, escape a neighbour who likes collecting and much more.

This was a book of insta-love for me. (Yes that can happen). Wonderful characters with fun and enjoyable storytelling not to forget the beautiful art.

Plus the entire book is stunning; a black and white stripped hard cover with purple edged pages and gorgeous purple dustjacket. It’s a treasure inside and out.
