The Lovereading4Kids comment
First published as a series of shorter books, The Animals of Farthing Wood has been enthralling readers for over 30 years and has never fallen out of print. The animals must unite in adversity for this is a story about tolerance, and cooperation. Both heart-wrenching and heart-warming, this classic story continues to appeal and capture children's imaginations. Tackling a range of topical issues and in particular the environment, this novel was awarded the National Award for Children's Literature.
The Good Book Guide Review. A long entertaining animal yarn about a group of woodland creatures being driven by man's greed to seek new homes.

The Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dann‘I think you’re forgettingsomething, Adder,’ said Badger. ‘Before we begin our journey we all swore an oath, including you.’ Farthing Wood is being bulldozed and a drought means the animals no longer have anywhere to live or drink. Fox, Badger, Toad, Tawny Owl, Mole and the other animals band together and leave their ancestral home and set off to move to a far-away nature reserve.
