Mango and Bambang’s adventures continue in the third book of this charming illustrated series about a little girl and a tapir, described by The Sunday Times as having real charm reminiscent of Paddington.
When a small but mischievous tapir guest comes to stay with Mango Allsorts and Bambang in the busy city, things soon get into a rather troublesome tangle.
How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review
Review: Whenever a Manga & Bambang book arrives it comes along with tugging a cloud of joy and a feel-good dance of Tapir-happiness (the second reference makes more sense when you’ve read the books; which by the way you absolutely must do).
Mango & Bambang: Tiny Tapir Trouble contains four stories. I think compared to the first two books in the series Tiny Tapir Trouble has more for readers to think about then the adventures of the first two. I really loved the message of the first story, Seaside Rescue, which is not to judge someone different. As well the final story, Park Games, which is about cheating.
I remain completely in love with Bambang and Mango, though I hope not to see his tiny cousin again (no matter how adorable he looks in illustrations) and can’t wait for the next book.
