I won this book as a GR Giveaway, in exchange for an honest review.

This is a book of heartwarming, touching animal stories, both of pets and wild life.
I won't forget Muffin the dog, Renny the rabbit, County the robin or Raven the cat, Russell Crow (:D), Buster the pig and the nameless frog. There are so many more wonderful animals in these pages; these just stuck out.
A lovely bunch of stories about our animal friends. I really enjoyed this book.
