Meerkat Mail

Author: Emily Gravett
Illustrator: Emily Gravett
Publisher: Macmillan

Sunny finds life with his typically close meerkat family somewhat claustrophobic and sets off to see the world, staying with various mongoose relatives along the way. However, nowhere feels quite right and eventually he returns home wearily to his loving family in the Kalahari Desert. The lift-the-flap postcards he sends home during his travels provide ideas for children’s own writing.
