The Suitcase

The Suitcase

Chris Naylor-Ballesteros
Nosy Crow Ltd
ISBN: 9781788004480

This story is all about making new friends and deciding whether to believe tales that people tell you.

As a strange animal approaches a group of friends, he tells them all about the magical things he has in his suitcase. The other animals find it tricky to decide whether he is telling the truth or not so when he is sleeping, one of the animals decides to open his suitcase and see for themselves! The animals are shocked at what they find but they decide that instead of getting cross at the animal for telling tall tales, they will help to make his dreams become a reality. Luckily, instead of being cross that the animals had doubted him in the first place, the animal decides he may have some new friends after all.

This is a nice story with some interesting opportunities for several moral discussions - trusting people, making new friends and dealing with difficulties with others.
