Animals and Us

As readers, we learn about the sometimes life-and-death struggle each creature faces. We also witness the resourcefulness of animals and people as they compete and share the same habitat.

We encounter unusual birds like the New Zealand kiwi, beasts of Africa migrating across rivers and plains, the common toad, woodland bats, prize British livestock, ocean creatures and a very ingenious butterfly.

Written for children of all ages, Animals and Us is a thought-provoking, imaginative and uncompromising voyage into the animal’s mind’s eye, and the effect we are all having on their precious world.

David G Shaw, who has won acclaim from family and friends for these charming and original stories, has lovingly illustrated each chapter.
