Jungle Doctor’s Fables

Jungle Doctor's FablesThere was once a monkey who didn’t believe in crocodiles – but that didn’t make any difference when he met one in the middle of the night on the banks of the Great River. There was another money who tried to pull himself out of a bog by his whiskers; all that was left of him was two small bubbles on top of the mud. And as for the snake who thought he could steal the egg of Kuku the hen without being found out – well, he has been warned!


Jungle Doctor's Monkey Tales The wisdom of monkeys is proverbially small. They never remember not to get too near to the hind feet of zebra, nor to throw coconuts at Chewi the leopard, nor to look into the eyes of snakes. Luckily for his little monkey nephews, Uncle Nyani, the only survivor of a family of seven, is always near at hand to tell them how they can live to be as old as he is! If you want to know a little more about the matter of eggs, or the wise use of red paint and mirrors, then join the circle of Nyani’s nephews and listen…


Jungle Doctor's Tug of War Even by monkey standards, young Toto is pretty dim! Those baddies of the jungle, Crunch the Crocodile, Mbisi the Hyena, Slinki the Jackal, Vibi the Vulture and Gnark the crow look as though they are going to have an easy time finishing him off. However, Toto’s real friends, Elephant, Giraffe, Parrot and Hornbill are determined to rescue him from the clutches of the jungle underworld.


Jungle Doctor's Hippo Happenings Boohoo the unhappy hippo is always in trouble. He has the kind of face which frightens even him when he sees it in a mirror! On top of all this, he suffers from hay-fever, and an awful desire to do good! Mind you, he is an expert at cracking coconuts, that is if you like licking your coconut milk up off the ground!
Hippo and his friends are pleased to have Jungle Doctor to write all their adventures down. If you want to know how Boohoo solved his problems at last, then start at page one and read on!


Jungle Doctor's Rhino Rumblings ‘Rhino bored holes in the clear morning air with his large spikey horn, and a deep rumble came from inside him, “I am big, I am strong, I am important. I AM RHINO!” And so Rhino begins by carving his own private motorway through the jungle – until, that is, the elephant-that-isn’t gets in the way! Poor Rhino! He has the gift of not only making trouble for everybody else, but getting into it himself as well! A large, self-opinionated, grumpy lump of trouble, Rhino eventually discovers that there are problems that can’t be brushed aside with a sharp horn or a hefty shoulder!


Jungle Doctor Meets Mongoose ‘He has an animal under his shirt and he says he won’t stay in hospital unless that animal stays too’ – this is when we meet Hwikwi the mongoose for the first time!

To find out how Elephant’s powerful medicine saved the day, how Python got his bulge and how Goon the baboon got the bump on his head then you’re going to have to read this new collection of Jungle Doctor’s larger-than-life animal fables!
