Though this story collection is mainly tied by the common theme of animals, it also has lots of humour and heart, with gentle lessons about the power of imagination and kindness. Animal lovers are sure to devour this volume, and the less animal-crazy reader is sure to find something in it to appeal to them as well.

Angela Morgan, Magpies Magazine

Some of the animals and humans in these short stories are real and some come with a large dose of imagination, but all deserve to be shared by readers and listeners from age six up . . . They combine a theme of friendship and understanding with hints of fairy tales and magic. The illustrations are integrated seamlessly with the stories and capture the tone and highlights of the tale, enhancing the connections between reader and story.

CBCA, Buzz About Books Newsletter

There are twelve delightful stories that embrace animals of all kinds from the real to the fantastic, the large to the small – each unique and for the lover of the animal story genre, a treasure trove for the imagination. Each story is complete and long and detailed enough to make a great stand-alone read for those few minutes that can only be filled by a story.
