We're off to see the animals in this funky little tale, and one animal in particular is almost beside himself with excitement. In "A Gold Star for George" it's awards time at the zoo and all the animals are on their best behaviour, hoping to win a gold star to display proudly on their enclosure.

George the Giraffe thinks he's a shoe-in for at least SOMETHING but as his other animal friends win most of the accolades, George feels a little left out.

Despite that, he's a fantastic and supportive friend. He might be rubbish at the hula-hoop and feel like he has no tricks to his name, but he's always rooting for his pals and genuinely pleased to see them winning.

Perhaps then, as George settles down to sleep that night, he might wake up to a surprise on his own enclosure the next morning?

A fab little tale of friendship, sportsmanship and generally being nice to others even if you're feeling a bit left out and a bit down. We love George, he's our kind of giraffe!

Charlotte's best bit: Those cheeky and rather messy meerkats!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A lovely little tale of friendship and sportsmanship with a fab giraffe character for us to root for. Hooray for George!
