What are you going to wear, Pascal? By Magali Le Huche (Twirl / Tourbillon)

Pascal, the duck-billed platypus has a problem that many of us share. He's woken up this morning and he can't think what to wear!
You know the feeling. You've just woken up, you can still taste the toothpaste and now you want to get dressed but throwing open the wardrobe and the chest of drawers, what on earth is there to wear?

In "What are you going to wear, Pascal?" poor Pascal just can't decide and enlisting the help of his friends Cardigan, Fancy, Ringo and (our favourite) Zelda really isn't helping. There's nothing else for it but to hunt high and low for some impressive threads for a very special day.

So what do you think Pascal should choose?

Does he look good in...

Natty skid lids old chap!
..a brand new crash helmet, with a fab artisan painted design?

Or maybe there's something lurking at the back of the wardrobe...

Nope! Oh dear. After a while all that searching makes Pascal a bit blue but sometimes what you're looking for is in the very last place you would think to look!

Um, that's nice. By nice we mean "OH MY GOODNESS NO NOT THAT ANYTHING BUT THAT!"
This is a fab little knockabout tale (and we've come to the conclusion that there should be more platypuses in books!)

Charlotte's favourite bit: Pascal's final choice of outfits. Keep it simple!

Daddy's favourite bit: A fun and original story with an adorable character at its heart!
