Starry Safari

Starry Safari

by Linda Ashman Illustrated by Jeff Mack

"Beep! Beep! Beep!" A daring girl and her trusty orange jeep are off on an exciting safari. There are giraffes to watch, rhinos to race, and wily crocodiles to avoid. And when a roaring lion crosses her path, she knows exactly what to do: roar back! But will she be as courageous when it's time for bed and there are lots of scary night noises? Action packed from beginning to end, this rhyming adventure will keep young readers on the edge of their seats. Going on safari has never been more fun!
