'charming ... Printed on thick mat paper, with a two-colour palette true to the author and artist Tomi Ungerer's original artwork, the books make delightful bedtime reading for the under-sevens.' Daily Telegraph There is an educational element to this story too. The discovery by the Mellops' of the different fossils - ammonites, belemnites and ceriths are accompanied by an illustration of each to show what they look like. Even the exploration for oil is carefully explained in the illustrations and text. The wooden tower the Mellops' build is called a derrick and the dangers of oil are emphasised when a discarded cigar causes a fire in the forest with the flames threatening to set the oil alight. Luckily, Mr Mellops is able to save the day.' Outside In, Inside Out

Textul de pe ultima copertă

The Mellops are no ordinary family of pigs, so it's not surprising that their summer bike trip turns into a full-fledged adventure. While picnicking in a quiet spot the Mellops find evidence that there may be oil beneath the earth's surface. Of course there is, and the Mellops set up a rig as quickly as possible. It all seems so simple, but little do they know that danger is just around the bend.
