The Lovereading4Kids 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.

Synopsis

Animal 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!

Reviews

Amazingly funny.
