More About This Title Animal Tales


A long-awaited new collection of 16 hilarious tales from the mind of a comic genius

A dog who just cannot understand why he is not allowed to practice medicine, a fox who runs a circus of trained chickens, a flea who thinks he is the manager of a chain of megastores, and a skunk who falls madly in love with a bear—these are some of the stars of these inventive tales about the wonders of the animal kingdom. Young readers will meet these absurd characters and more in a fantastic new collection of tales for children of all ages.
