A delightful story of a very endearing dog named Wilbur who spends his day exploring his local neighbourhood. He gets into all sorts of mischief by running through the newly raked leaves at the local shop, upsetting a family’s picnic in the park and somehow becoming entangled in the tail of a kite. The story is great fun with lots of lovely rhymes, rhythm and repetition. A perfect book for toddlers and preschoolers.
Wilbur is published into 4 books with 14 languages. Each book has four languages plus English included in the one book.
