Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
From a dog being a doctor to an elephant wanting trousers, animals doing extraordinary things make this a wonderful collection of unusual stories. Terry Jones takes a kindly look – and a positive one – at all kinds of animal antics and Michael Foreman illustrates the whole collection perfectly capturing the jokes about the animals while retaining their dignity.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
SynopsisAnimal Tales (The Fantastic World of Terry Jones) by Terry Jones
A dog who 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 mega-stores. A skunk who falls madly in love with a bear. All are characters in a fantastic new collection of tales for children of all ages. Hysterical fun for children and parents from the speaker of 'the funniest line ever uttered in film history' - He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy!
ReviewsAmazingly funny. -- Denver Post
