A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2017
Award-winning illustrator Jane Ray has gathered together a wonderful collection of stories from around the world which reflect her love of all kinds of animals – real and imaginary. Beautifully illustrated, each story whether it is from forest, mountain, jungle or plain, tells readers something about the importance of valuing animals and respecting their specific purpose. Familiar favourites including the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, the hilarious Rudyard Kipling tale of How the Rhinoceros Got his Skin and the title story, The Lion and the Unicorn are intermingled with less familiar stories such as The Singing Ringing Tree. ~ Julia Eccleshare
