An engaging tale – written in verse – about a handsome African Grey Parrot, Nebuchadnezzar the Third, and his unlikely playmate, Belinda – a bright and busy bee. Nebuchadnezzar lives in the deep jungles of Africa and comes to rich and colourful life when he takes to the air, showing off his splendid plumage as he swoops and dives with his fellow fliers. But every young creature needs a playmate and some fun, and this is where Belinda the Bee comes in. She’s Nebuchadnezzar's good friend, and after a day’s work they join together to play jungle hide-andseek. Lots of laughs and giggles later, they settle down for a good’s night’s sleep. Claire Norden’s now familiar style of illustration is cheerful and bright, and holds great appeal for young readers.
