Christopher Nibble the guinea pig loves gardening almost as much as playing football, so when he discovers six caterpillars enthusiastically munching away at his precious dandelions, he decides that the best way to protect his plants is to adopt the hungry, hairy invaders as pets. Along with his friend Posie – and following the wise advice of Mr Rosetti in the café, who helpfully points out that the pair will need to provide leaves and twigs rather than little woolly socks and chocolate buttons – he keeps the little larvae safe and happy… until they suddenly disappear from their jars! Can your preschoolers solve this perplexing (and enchanting) minibeast mystery before Christopher and Posie eventually realise what’s happened?
