Remarkable Animal stories from NZ and Australia by Maria gill. Illustrated by Emma Huia Lovegrove. Pub. Scholastic, 2021.

August 12, 2021

Twenty eight delightful stories about animals in NZ and Australia who have displayed acts of behaviour that have inspired humans. Bravery, humour, intelligence, empathy, difference from the norm, ability to understand human speech, companionship are all displayed in one of these stories.

Each story is told on a double page spread and includes a real image plus and artistic image drawn by illustrator Emma Huia Lovegrove. As well there is an amazing information box telling something about the animal concerned eg on Flint the drug detection dog it informs us that “dogs with longer snouts have a better sense of smell because they have room for more scent receptors” and on Lulu the cuddly kangaroo we learn that the Red Kangaroo can hop up to 70 kilometers per hour.

Its great to know that Einstein the Hugging camel has three eyelids which he can squeeze to keep out sand. And there is more. Check it out. Animal lovers will be delighted. I gave it to my granddaughters and they read it in one sitting.

You don’t get this sought of info and entertainment on a web site.
