Summary

It’s Jones’ birthday and as a special treat, Uncle Pepe is going to bake one of his famous apple pies! Eager to help, Wombat and Jones offer to go to the tree and pick the apples Uncle Pepe needs for his recipe, but they get a little carried away and bring home far too many. Worried that the leftover apples will rot and no one will want to eat them, Wombat and Jones hatch a plan to share the apples with friends and make sure that none of them go to waste, getting help from Badger the Giraffe, Magdalena Mouse, and Huey the Grumpy Monkey along the way. 

Written by author Arran Francis, creator of multiple series for BBC's CBeebies Radio, Wombat & Jones: The Great Apple Fiasco is a funny tale about friendship, problem-solving, and teamwork. Simple mistakes can happen after all, but Wombat & Jones try their best to put it right and learn from them.

Fantastic

Great story for kids with a really engaging narrator. It’s a lovely story with a nice message and a lot of funny moments. I loved the different character’s voices. Can’t wait for the next one!

Loved it!

Listened to this title with my daughter as we had breakfast. She was very reactive to it and listened intently. She's only 4 and the story opened up a few comments which was lovely.
Highly recommend!
