Animal Tales

Publisher: Young Corgi

Jackson the rabbit runs away to sea and ends up in Australia and the ancestor of millions. The 'cat lady' lives to look after cats, believing some of them are reincarnated friends, family or even royalty. Hezekiah the lonely camel decides to leave the zoo and look for some new friends in the countryside.  Will someone buy a cheerful little mongrel with a big voice - or are his days numbered?

This anthology brings together five charming and humorous animal stories from much-loved author Dick King-Smith, the author of Babe. Accompanied with characterful drawings from a variety of different illustrators, this is an ideal short story collection for young animal lovers.
