The enjoyable interactions of the animals that live at Mudpuddle Farm are brilliantly brought to life by former Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo. Different animals are highlighted in the six separate adventures. There’s the cunning of Mossop the lazy cat who is given one last chance to see off the mice in the barley sacks; the dramatic adventures of Albertine the Goose when she outwits the fox; how Jigger the sheep dog enjoys his day off; what happens when Pintsize the piglet tries to fly; some unusual behaviour from Egbert the goat and a threat to them all when it seems as if the aliens have landed.
A charming series of adventures for younger readers, featuring a family of all sorts of animals that live in the farmyard behind the tumble-down barn on Mudpuddle Farm! Six fantastic stories in one volume!
