LoveReading View on Greatest Animal Stories, Chosen by Michael Morpurgo

In this handsome book, Michael Morpurgo has collected together some of the animal stories that he grew up with and loved, from Brer Rabbit and the Ugly Duckling, to Puss in Boots and The Fox and the Crow. They are retold by some of the finest children’s writers of today and each one is illustrated in full colour by a talented illustrator. The tellings are fresh, direct and absorbing. Morpurgo himself has chosen to tell the story of Peter and the Wolf and he does so with typical robustness, his prose lean and insistent, grabbing young readers’ attention in the opening line and holding it to the very end. This is a collection that is certain to fan the imaginations of a new generation of readers. ~ Andrea Reece
