Mrs. Elephant, Mrs. Walrus and Mr. Bear are off to town again, this time, to go to the fair. But they keep seeing other attractions that take their fancy - shops, a cafe, the park, the cinema. When they finally arrive, the fair is closed for the night and everyone has gone home. Bitterly disappointed (especially Mr. Bear), the animals decide to sleep outside the fair, until they are let in by the man who unlocks the gates in the morning. From the Back CoverMrs Elephant, Mr Bear and Mrs Walrus are off to the fair. But when they get to town they keep getting distracted by shops, a caf', the cinema and even the swimming pool. Will they ever make it to the fair?
