Baby Oil comes from Apple Island in Somerset. It is always a sunny day on Apple Island, because on Apple Island it only ever rains after bedtime and before getting-up time. It's a magical place full of wonderul characters - Babby Balm, Soothing Sal, Bobby Oil, Tommy Rub, Bessy Balm, Bertie Butter -  who have lots of adventures with the rabbits and other animals in among the flowers and along the riverbanks.
