Age range 3 to 8 Muddle and Mo are the best of friends. Muddle is a loveable, slightly confused yet enthusiastic little duckling. Mo is a long-suffering, not very adventurous goat with lots of patience. Today, Muddle is preparing a surprise picnic for Mo. Mo doesn't like worms, so will he like what's in the basket?
