Mango and Bambang reach for the stars in the fourth 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", these books are modern classics. Both Mango and Bambang are left star-struck when Bambang's cousin comes to town with Hollywood actress Minty Verbena. But when disaster strikes, Bambang is the true star of the show. Superstar Tapir is Book Four in this delightful series for younger readers.
"Here are four more adventures for Mango and her best friend Bambang the tapir and they are if anything even more appealing than previous stories, perfect fiction for young readers. [...] Beautifully illustrated, simply told but full of incident, the charm of these stories derives not just from their fun adventures but from the deep affection between the two central characters. Lovely!" * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading *
