This is a simply stunning new picture book which takes the reader/listener on a fantastic journey of the imagination. Beautifully read by Samantha Bond. The characters are truly original and brimming with life and vitality - they lead the child into a world so minutely realised, it feels real. A classic in the making. Something has happened on Blue Nose Island which has never happened before! The sun hasn't come up and the moon has become stuck at the top of Blue Nose Volcano. Someone is going to have to do something...and so Ploo, the blue nose dog, begins an adventure to the Junglewood, where lives the Terrible Gnobbler. Will Ploo save the sun, or sink in the bottomless lagoon?
