Robin went to the car-boot sale to buy something which could fly, something like an aeroplane or a helicopter.

He didn’t imagine that he would go home with something which could fly and make honey as well!

He soon learned so much about bees that he was really glad that he had bought Bertie!

When Robin bought Carla the Cow from Pete’s Treats stall at the car-boot sale, he was warned that she was moody and selfish but he bought her anyway.

He soon found out that the other cows didn’t like her but when she realised this she made a real effort to fit in with the herd but how did she do it?

Have you ever wondered what fish do in a big aquarium?

Well Carlos told Robin that they watch people. And what a funny lot those people are and what strange habits they have got.

Carlos couldn’t understand why some people had smoke coming out of their mouths? It didn’t look like a good idea, what did Robin think?

Camels were unusual on the car boot sale and fortunately Robin could afford to buy Clarence, but Clarence wasn’t the perfect Camel.

In fact at first he thought that he was very fast and a bit too clever.

It took a hard lesson in life to learn what grown-up call humility but learning that lesson brought him a great reward!

Before Robin first chose Donkey Hoo Tee he couldn’t imagine what life was like for a donkey on the Plains of Spain, well he soon found out that it was very hard work.

That was until the day that when he won something which would change his life forever, but it took a very special man to help him to do it.

How strange that they both had the same name!

Robin didn’t know much about Gorillas until he bought Gavin. He thought that they were all about chest thumping and making loud noises. He thought they were fierce and scary and that little dogs like Snuffles were cute and cuddly.

He soon found out that this wasn’t always so. When Gavin was being picked on, who do you think came to the rescue?

Geraldo was another great buy with a very interesting story to tell and a great explanation about Giraffes and sore throats.

He was also getting bored with his simple diet of leaves so he tried an experiment with people food.

That brought its own problems but what happened helped Robin’s friend Caroline with her own difficulties!

When Robin bought Leon the Lion from the car-boot sale, he expected him to be fierce and scary but that couldn’t have been further from the truth.

Just how did the King of the Jungle turn into the King of the Jingle.

Well you will have to read the book to find out!

When Roger started to Tell Robin and Grandad his story he admitted that he had problems with reading. So he never bothered to read labels.

That was alright until he left home and then the trouble started.

After his problems with giant rhubarb he became determined to learn to read properly and that landed him the best Reindeer job of all!

Taffy was a Welsh rabbit and can you guess what his favourite sport was? Yes that’s right, it was Rugby.

It was his ambition in life to watch Wales play England but how could he ever save up enough to buy the ticket?

What Robin learned from Taffy helped his scout group to go on their summer camp, but how?
