(124 reviews)

Holly Webb’s Animal Stories are immensely popular with young animal-lovers aged 6+. The simple stories, paired with sweet illustrations from Sophy Williams, mean they are great for newly confident readers to read independently, as well as for reading aloud.

Each book tells the story of a puppy or kitten that gets into a scrape, and the children that help them. From lost and abandoned kittens and puppies, to injuries and rescues, all the books have a happy ending for the furry friends.

There are now over 50 books in the Animal Stories series, with new titles being published every year. You can read Holly Webb’s books in any order.
