ABOUT THE BOOK
The Wandering Wildebeest tells the story of the massive annual migration across the African plains in search of food and water. In the blistering heat, our heroes keep on walking over the parched, dusty ground in their quest to find lush grassland to graze upon. Having faced starvation, exhaustion and dehydration, they finally see a happy, grazing herd of buffalo in the distance! But in order to reach the grassland, the wildebeest have one more dangerous challenge ahead – to cross the deep, wide, river filled with crocodiles!

Written in humorous rhyme and including off-the-wall characters and scenarios, Martin Coleman's funny, silly story, accompanied by Tim Slater’s stunning and hilarious illustrations will both educate and entertain children of all ages, (and we think the grown-ups will secretly enjoy it, too!)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Following a lifelong passion for creative writing, father-of-four Martin Coleman wrote his first story for children, 'The King's Panto,' in 2009. Six years later he had self-published three original books, all illustrated by Tim Slater, and had been commissioned five times by a global charity to rewrite classic tales for children’s apps and books.

Martin especially loves creating silly, rhyming stories which grown-ups will enjoy almost as much as the children!

He hopes you all have lots of fun reading his first officially published book, ‘The Wandering Wildebeest.’
