Review

This the story of two aardvarks. Two aardvarks that seem destined to never meet, despite the fact they are both rather keen to become part of a two. Aalfred is an aardvark who loves stars, picnics and broccoli. Aalbert is an aardvark who loves flowers, sunshine and cheese. Both of them love sleeping, however, so they never met each other due to the times in which they each get some shut eye.

It seems that fate is working against them. That is until a little blue bird has an idea to get the two aardvarks to meet. Over the next few days, the bird puts into action many ideas and plans to try and bring the two together but things never quite work out. Eventually, however, through somewhat of an accident, the two land at each other's feet - literally - and live happily ever after.

An adorable and somewhat unconventional love story that shows that eventually love triumphs and that good things comes to those who wait.
