Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Little Miss Wolfy Good learns how to be bad and Yuri becomes the first astronaut in the Hamster Space Programme. Little Spike the baby hedgehog wants to stay awake all winter, but soon finds out how unpleasant that can be. While at the zoo the meerkats are attempting to escape in a number of imaginative ways.

This anthology contains the ten winning stories from the second story-writing competition Mumsnet has held in conjunction with Walker Books. The winning stories were chosen by a panel of judges, including former Children's Laureate Anthony Browne.

A wide variety of animals feature in these original stories; they are beautifully illustrated in a range of styles and the book is well-produced
