Schnitzel von Krumm's family has replaced his smelly old basket - will he ever sleep again? Another hilarious tale in Lynley Dodd's Hairy Maclary and Friends series.
Tucked in a hideyhole under the stair,
lay a rickety basket in need of repair . . .
Schnitzel von Krumm is outraged when his misguided family decides to replace his worn out, beaten up, smelly old basket. He tries to find somewhere else sleep, but none of the places he tries out - a pile of laundry, the broom cupboard, the vegetable basket, under a shrub - has the friendly smell of his old basket. Poor little Schnitzel! Will his family get the message?
