Gilbert the Hero

Illustrated by Charles Fuge

It's great fun having a baby brother - right? Well, not for Gilbert. His new baby brother, Finn, is too small to join in with any of his games. In fact, he's no fun at all - but big brother Gilbert's not going to let a killer whale eat his little brother... is he?

An exciting third book in the Gilbert series where Gilbert discovers that being a big brother can sometimes be fun after all.
