Poppy's Tail by Cate Douglas 


Poppy dreams it would be fun to have a tail. But which kind will she choose? She tries out many different animal tails, then invents her own and finds lots of amusing and original ways to use it.

With vibrant illustrations and light-hearted rhyme, Poppy's Tail is a playful and engaging picture book, designed to captivate a young child's imagination and also entertain the reader. Age range 3-6 years.
