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.
John Bendall-Brunello has been illustrating children's books for over 25 years; his artwork features in books by authors including Dick King Smith and Martin Waddell. Tiziana and John Bendall-Brunello are the writer–illustrator team behind QED's "I Wish I Could..." series.
