The Lovereading4Kids comment

Wonderful animal tales from around the world are vividly brought to life in these entertaining stories which are gloriously brought to life in Quentin Blake’s illustrations. There are magical monkeys, a daring tortoise, a tricksy locust who outsmarts a coyote and many more besides. The essence of the different animals and the celebration of their different attributes is a delight.

Synopsis

Quentin Blake's Amazing Animal Stories by John Yeoman

Meet fearsome alligators, clever coyotes, a jittery leopard, a shell-less tortoise and all sorts of amazing animals in these 14 wonderful stories from expert storyteller John Yeoman and one of the greatest children's artists working today, Quentin Blake. Stories that will entertain and get children thinking, perfect for children aged 8-12. Other titles in the series: Quentin Blake's Magical Tales.

Reviews

The expressive cartoon ink-and-wash illustrations are characteristically endearing and work well with the text, which is a combination of deadpan humor and sheer ruthlessness. . . . The stories are engaging, told in the wry voice of traditional folktales. --School Library Journal
