Description: "Arthur the aardvark loves adventure, but it is not until he sails away to another country that he realises anyone could find his appearance or behaviour strange. Why do the funny creatures he meets laugh so loudly at him? A story about tolerance and keeping an open mind about things we don't immediately understand."
Beautiful, full-page and in-text colour illustrations throughout.
