message 6: by Clare (new)

Clare Bell Thanks to all the people who suggested and voted for my novel, Ratha's Creature!

Clare Bell


message 7: by Cassie (new)

Cassie Shoebag by Mary James! I read it years ago when I was in elementary school, but it's still one of my favorite animal books.


message 8: by Hunter (new)

Hunter Didriksen there are a lot of little kid books!!!!!!! geese!


message 9: by Manatee (new)

Manatee Is Black Beauty on the list?


message 10: by Wealhtheow (new)

Wealhtheow Where the Red Fern Grows is emotionally manipulative, maudlin tripe. I have no idea why it's taught in schools, beyond sadism or apathy on the parts of teachers.


message 11: by Preeti (new)

Preeti This is an awesome list! I will have to keep coming back to it for more book recommendations!

Book #12 is Black Beauty


message 15: by Breanne (new)

Breanne Tiger saga all the way :)


message 16: by Katherine (new)

Katherine Black The Elephant Keeper
this is another great animal read! Modoc made the list but Zamba didn't.
Zamba: The True Story of the Greatest Lion That Ever Lived


message 17: by Katherine (last edited Aug 17, 2011 08:03AM) (new)

Katherine Black I have read lots of animal stories this summer I forgot these two
The Horse Boy: A Father's Quest to Heal His Son

Soul of a Lion

Both really great reads!


message 18: by Brian (new)

Brian Spiekerman To be honest, Warriors isn't the best of these. I thought Colin Dann's The Animals of Farthing Wood was the best animal story.


message 19: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca I'm so glad Wesley: The Story of a Remarkable Owl is on the list. It's one of my favourite books and it is so moving!


message 20: by Christel (new)

Christel Why is "To Kill a Mockingbird" on the list?


message 21: by Michelle (new)

Michelle To Kill a Mockingbird removed as it is not about animals at all. I can only assume the individual who added it only read the title.


message 22: by Emmy (new)

Emmy This is a very nice list ^^


message 23: by Laura (new)

Laura Tischer I selected Animal farm but, we all know it is a political satire.
So I think All Creatures Great and Small


message 24: by Allison (new)

Allison Lundgren Peanut wrote: "No Black Beauty???? That's not right!"

black beauty is at the top


message 25: by Chris (new)

Chris S. A Wing and a Prayer by John Morano should be on here.
