Dieter is a businessman. Actually he’s a business monkey. What sort of business is he in? The monkey business, of course! Need your hat stolen? Want to be pelted with fruit? Enjoy listening to loud screeching and howling? Then call Dieter! For a reasonable fee (payable in bananas) Dieter and his colleagues will provide all the aggravation you require.
Percival’s strict low-carb diet has kept him looking young and trim, but he’s actually one of the oldest animals in the forest. He’s been around since the Cretaceous Period, which was over 60 million years ago. He’s lucky because he’s had lots and lots of birthday parties. Unfortunately, his parties have become a logistical nightmare because of the immense number of candles needed for his cake.
Do you like vegetables? No? Well, Alister loves them! That’s all he ever eats; vegetables, leaves, roots, twigs. That’s why he loves living in the forest, it’s like living in a giant salad bar! No croutons, but otherwise it’s perfect. He says vegetables help keep him healthy and slender. No one has the heart to tell him he’s actually not all that slender. But even vegetables can’t keep you skinny if you eat 750 pounds of them a day, like Alister.
Yummy! Everyone knows the highest leaves are the tastiest, so it’s easy to understand how Baxter can get preoccupied while he’s nibbling away at the top of the forest. But he has to be careful about what’s going on down below too. A lot of squashed picnics, flattened flower gardens, and sore tails have been left in the path of Baxter’s distracted wanderings. But none of the forest animals stay mad at Baxter for too long because he’s very good at rescuing their balloons, kites, and frisbees from out of the trees.
