In this colourful and flamboyant illustrated, large format alphabet book, animals from around the globe have gathered for a dance contest in the world-famous Tower Ballroom. Who will win? Camels dancing the conga? Flamingos dancing flamenco? Or penguins doing the polka? And what are those mischievous monkeys up to? Turns out they've stolen the band's musical instruments-26 in all! Once the reader finds all 26 of the musical instruments, hidden within the artwork, the grand finale can begin.
