It is a good book for bedtime storytelling and is good for read aloud sessions in classrooms as it handles a relevant topic which is important to everyone.”

Readers’ Favorite Review 5STARS

When a cheetah cub and a puppy dog bump into each other while chasing the same prey, it is only natural for them to play together until sundown; and the next day; and the following one. The two animals care for each other so much that they even rescue their respective packs, thus becoming an African tale.

The Elephant and the Sheep

https://MyBook.to/ElephantSheep

“Two unlikely animals become the best of friends despite their diverse physical differences. This is yet another excellent story from the author that special bonds can form between two completely different species. The rhyming is gentle and has a nice motion to it. Children will love the illustrations. They are delightfully simple and colourful.”

Whispering Stories, *****

When a lamb meets an elephant calf the two are happy to share a small patch of grass and a tiny water puddle available during the Big-Bad Thirst. None of the two notices how different their bodies are, as the two are happy to spend their days together. Soon the sheep wishes that he, too, would arrive first at their meeting place and so he wakes up earlier and earlier each day. But no matter how hard he tries he cannot arrive before the elephant – because the elephant never left their tree, not having a home of his own. The sheep invites friend elephant to join her and her flock so that he will also have a family.

Just Nuisance, the Sea-Dog

Just Nuisance, Patricia Furstenberg

“Just Nuisance, the Sea Dog by Patricia Furstenberg is a fun children’s tale about a Great Dane that loves to travel. Whether by ship, train, or plane, Just Nuisance finds a way to follow the humans he loves. Some of the great takeaways for this book are about perseverance and finding a solution when all seems hopeless. The book can simply entertain or open discussions between parents and children.”

A fun story about an adorable and REAL dog. Enjoy the happy rhyming and the matching illustrations.
Inspired by the story of he first dog enlisted in the Royal Navy during World War II.

Jock and his master shared a life of adventures in the African bush, transporting goods for a living, hunting their food together and sharing the warmth of the fire under a blanket of stars at night. Happy to have one other.

Huberta the Hippo, Amazing Adventures of a Happy River Horse

Huberta the Hippo: Amazing Adventures of a Happy River Horse

Written in flowing and rhythmic free verse and loose rhyme, Huberta the Hippo paints a picture of a happy animal who enjoys the simple things in life. I especially like the personality that Furstenberg attributes to Huberta. An entertaining read.”

Readers’ Favorite, Starred Review

Read about the adventures and misadventures of a real African hippopotamus that, one day, at noon, decided to migrate south: “The moon sees all from way up high, I wish to also see the world go by.” It took Hubert many years to travel 1 600km south, along the South African coast. Along the way Hubert made many friends and enemies as he was a friendly hippo but with a rather large appetite and he didn’t quite followed the human rules. Nobody knows why Hubert migrated, but we do know that he was happy when he reached his final destination and that only after his death was discovered that he was, actually, a girl.
