Takadu the aardvark is organising a surprise fig party for Noko's birthday and he invites all the animals except greedy Hyena, whose manners are too terrible. Takadu spends a long hot day at the fig tree picking a great big basket of figs. But Hyena follows him secretly, determined to steal the figs and spoil the party. How Takadu manages to give Noko an exciting birthday is hilariously told, in this second of the series about the lovable Takadu and Noko.
