Presented for the first time in paperback reader format, a classic anthology of Dick King-Smith's real-life animal encounters, narrated with anecdotal charm.

With an autobiographical foreword from the author, this collection traces Dick King-Smith's journey from boy to farmer, from soldier to favourite children's author - always in the company of his irrepressible animal friends. From Dodo the film-star Daschund to a cabbage-eating shark; from a night of badger-biffing to a tortie cat with one hundred and four kittens; from the cat who thinks he's one of the dogs to a dog who fosters orphaned kittens ... wherever Dick King-Smith goes, curious animals are sure to follow. So find a cosy spot, curl up by the fireside and feel the glow of that old Dick King-Smith animal magic - purrrrrrrrrr.
