Alice Mongoose and Alistair Rat in Hawaii By Mary Pfaff

by Diana Hockley

Alice Mongoose lives with her parents in a big house in India, where they happily eat eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Alice goes to the market one day and sees an advertisement encouraging mongooses to go to Hawaii. Flushed with excitement, Alice and her parents pack her suitcases and steam-trunk (they didn’t have back-packs in those days!) and she sets sail for her new job.
