Listen to an audio clip

On the front cover is the girl, Charlie, and her brother Eddie. Charlie is wearing a saucepan on her head and waving a wooden spoon in the air. Her brother Eddie is beside her and is wearing a hat too, but this one has flaps at the side and goggles on top. It looks like the kind of hat that pilots used to wear to fly planes. On the page on the left Charlie, Eddie and the grey wolf are all sitting together and gently howling. Do you know how to howl? Shall we try it together? *howling noise
This double page picture is bursting all over with pink and blue bubbles. In the middle of the picture someone is lying in the deep, warm water with only their face poking out. They’re wearing a bathing cap to keep their hair dry and have slices of cucumber on their eyes. Who do you think that is?
