Mink doesn’t believe in rules. She loves running wild and free. So, when a zebra appears in the square where she lives and she finds out that his parents have been captured by the evil Mr Spit, she knows that it’s up to her to help.

So begins a grand adventure to rescue a whole menagerie of animals – an adventure that will take all of Mink’s courage and determination.

Written with generous helpings of warmth and humour, this is a timeless picture book about bravery, friendship and the importance of taking action. With stunning illustrations by award-winning illustrator Sara Ogilvie, illustrator of The Detective Dog, this modern classic from bestselling children’s author Katherine Rundell is an unmissable treat.
