Baby Monde's present is a pushchair - but her brother makes it go to wroom like a racing car. There isn't much relaxation until patient Grandmother takes over and they go for a nice long slow walk. Bright, lively pictures give extra vigour to the simple adventures. Don't miss the playful cat and the scruffy dog! This story was “written” by Marjorie’s daughter when she was six years old
