Publisher Summary
A young girl's ordinary journey through the jungle turns into an amusing adventure, thanks to a few surprising encounters along the way.

Beatrice sets out through the lush African jungle to visit her beloved granddad. She carries with her a bunch of beautiful bananas as a special gift for him.

But her journey is interrupted as she encounters friendly but mischievous animals, including a giraffe, a parrot, monkeys...even a swarm of bees! When she loses the bananas, every animal tries to replace them with something special, but each gift gets lost in turn.

Finally, a friendly elephant reaches high into the trees. Will Granddad get his beautiful bananas after all?

Author Elizabeth Laird's clever, circular folktale is complemented by illustrator Liz Pichon's bright, bold images of the African jungle and the colorful and exotic animals that live there.
