  Very funny indeed !!!

This is a very funny book. and well worth the money.
Despite being in stock, it took seven weeks to be delivered.
Three emails to customer service with three 'standardised' replies from playdot and still no explanation for the delay.
When everything is going well playdot are good but their customer service is non existant when they fail to deliver.
This is the last item I will be buying from playdot and any future emails have been directed to spam.
So playdot, well done for losing another customer.

If you thought this was just the advertisers way of screwing a little more money out of us for good measure - you'd be wrong! I was given this book for Christmas as I am obssessed by all things meerkat and it really is a fabulous work of fiction. I would even say it should replace some childrens books as a bedtime story if you can get past the pigeon english. There is no end to this little meerkats appeal....Cant wait for the film...you heard it here first!!

  A literary classic!

What. An. Amazing. Book! This is literary gold! An incredible book documenting the life of a fictional meerkat. If anyone can find a better way to spend their time than reading about fictional meerkats then they're a better man than me!

This book about a fictional meerkat from an advert is the perfect stocking filler this Christmas. Whether you're buying for someone younger than you, older than you, friend or family, you can guarantee there's nothing they'd rather do on Christmas day than read about a fictional meerkat off the TV. It is thrilling, topsy turvy journey that will keep everyone on their toes! It would even be suitable to read out to the entire family, possibly after xmas dinner. I challenge anyone to be able to put this down!

Anyone with a sense of humour must buy this book about the life of a fictional meerkat...simples!

I bought this as a Christmas present for somebody, but it's so lovely, I'm keeping it for myself. It's beautifully illustrated and even written in the stilted English that he speaks with, lol. The best novelty book I've ever seen.

Absolutely brilliant loved it, always liked the ads so had to have the book, im sure anyone that buys this book will find themselves reading it in a certain accent, dont think i'd feel the same if Gocompare bring out there own version.
