John Goodwin lends his amusing storytelling style to 10 animal stories which each have an important moral value to impart. Stories are drawn from a range of countries - China, India, Germany - as well as giving a passing nod to the fables of Aesop. Stories included are: The Musicians of Bremen; Party Time; The Nightingale; The Cheeky Monkey; The Lion and the Mouse; Princess Petunia and the Pig; The Hare and the Hedgehog; Fish Girl; The Talking Bear; and Chauntecleer the Cockerel. Each story extends over 2 double page spreads and contains around 600 words. The accompanying CD has lively sound effects and music to bring the stories to life.
