Stef takes the twins out for a walk to the pond. On their way they pass through fields full of flowers, grasshoppers and bees. They stop at a farm, where they feed the hens, pigs and ponies. But when they reach the pond, the clouds turn grey and it starts to rain. The twins love splashing about in the rain. But where do all the animals go when it rains?
A wonderfully detailed picture book, with a variety of animals to spot, which will be enjoyed time and time again.
This is a very lovely, wistful tale of an ideal day spent exploring outside. Lots of nostalgic warmth in Muller’s illustrations.
