Summary

Collection of folklore stories to explain how each kind of animal became different from each other

This collection of eleven evocative, accessible and funny stories for children of 5+ tells how a particular animal came to be as it is now.

The Whale grew up in God's vegetable patch but was banished to sea when he became too large and crushed all His carrots.

The Polar Bear was lured to the North Pole by the other animals who were jealous that she always won the annual beauty contest.

The Hare has asked the moon to marry him but can never stretch his ears high enough to hear her reply...

Each story is a delight for reading alone or aloud.

Book banded for guided reading by the Institute of Education - classic short story collection / mythic
