    I've read several Nocturnal books now and they are enjoyable.  This is a beginning reader and it's even more fun to read!

    Fabled Films sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

    I like this series because it doesn't have the usual dogs or cats in it.  There's a pangolin, a sugar glider, and a fox.  Singleton's illustrations are great and give you a good idea of what the real animal looks liked.

    In this story, a pomelo has fallen from the tree and Tobin, the pangolin, finds it.  He's looking forward to eating it when he's challenged by Bismark, a loud sugar glider.  Whenever a pangolin gets surprised or frightened, he lets air out that smells awful.  That's always good for giggles.

    When Bismark comes down and tells Tobin he's a thief, it's his pomelo, there's a stand-off.  Then Dawn, the fox, shows up.  She listens to their story, then cuts the pomelo into thirds and they each have a portion.  She's the smartest and sanest animal in this group.  You can tell she's wise from her decision how to solve this problem.

    This was a delightful read with great illustrations.  The story will make your young ones smile and they'll learn more about the animals with the bonus facts at the end.
