Beatrice is a young girl who lives in Africa. She sets out to bring her granddad a present. She meets many different animals on the way. Each one accidentally messes up her gift and gives her a replacement in return. Finally, she ends up with the same gift that she started out with. In this book the author shows how a circular chain of events works. I think that this book is a great model for writing this type of book. ( )

Cheerful, bright, circular story. ( )

Such a cute story of a young girl on the way to her grandfathers house with a batch of bananas. She encounters a few mistakes on her way. This is a good story for a first grade classroom where they could guess what is coming next!

This book is a good example of fantasy because it combines real life events with animals who are friendly and giving to the little girl Beatrice as she journeys through the jungle on her way to her grandfather's house.
