I got this book from my elder sis, at the age of 8 or 9. I dont remember how many times i have read & re-read this. Amazing stories.

Recommends it for: All kids out there
Read this book when I was a little child. I was never the same after it. This taught me the value of compassion, and why you should be nice to every living being. I think every kid should read this wonderful book.

Olga 's description of her childhood with her animals is truly wonderful and amazing. I loved each part of the book. Olga's Family had a wonderful relationship with all the animals. Also , I am surprised that no one in the family was afraid of any of their wild friends. The most exciting story in the book was of Chubary ,the horse ,but i liked every part of the book. Hats off to Olga :-))))))

داستان های بسیار شیرین از دوستی بچه ها و حیوانات که زمان خوندنشون همش دلم میخواست جای اونا باشم

ترجمه ای که ازش خوندم در دو جلد بود و طرح روی جلدش رو بیشتر ایرانی کار کرده بودن و تناسب چندانی با محتوای کتاب و محل وقوع داستان ها نداشت
