SynopsisAmy Wild, Animal Talker: The Musical Mouse by Diana Kimpton
Welcome to the world of Amy Wild, where dogs tell their secrets, cats perform rescue missions, and an entire island is squeaking and squawking with animal magic! Amy Wild's first day at her new school is disrupted by the appearance of an uninvited guest, when Mozart the music-loving mouse joins in the children's singing lesson. The head master is not impressed and threatens to get rid of Amy's friend, Einstein the school cat, if Einstein does not get rid of the mouse. As the newest and only human member of the Clan - a group of animals that make sure the island of Clamerkin is a happy place to live - Amy is determined to come up with a plan to save both Mozart and Einstein from the chop. Ever wondered what your pet is really thinking? Animal lovers everywhere will be instantly enchanted by this Dr. Doolittle for a new generation.

About The Author
I've always made up stories. When I was a child, I did it in my head - usually using characters from my favourite TV programmes. But I never saw it as a possible career especially as I never liked English at school. Perhaps I was already too much a writer at heart to enjoy dissecting other people's stories.
So I left school and became a maths teacher which I didn't like. Then I left teaching and became a mother which I loved. Finally, in the time left over from mothering, I became a writer which I found was enormous fun.
New writers are often advised to 'write what they know' and that's certainly how I started. My first book, A Special Child in the Family, was triggered by my own experiences parenting two sons with cystic fibrosis and so was my first non-fiction children's book, The Hospital Highway Code. My maths and science background still shows in my other non-fiction writing and my life-long passion for horses helps me write The Pony-Mad Princess.
