The Animals Collection

Three unforgettable novels about animals by award-winning former Children’€™s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, beautifully packaged as classic gift set.

Luxury gift edition box set of three best-selling Michael Morpurgo animal adventures:

The year is 1943. The setting is the seaside village of Slapton, Devon, for this moving story which is a subtle blend of history and human and animal relationships. Suddenly the villagers, together with families from six neighbouring villages totalling 3000, are ordered to move out so that US troops can practice their landings in preparation for D-Day, when the forces will invade France.

Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus. Bertie swears that one day they will see one another again…

For Best Mate, being rescued from drowning as a young puppy is only the start of his adventures. From unwanted burden to favourite companion, and from pet to champion race dog, this remarkable greyhound proves that it’€™s not just cats who have more than one life.

The perfect present for younger readers keen to learn more about the world around them through powerfully imaginative stories.
