A teacher who taught creative writing once said, "When you become a writer always consider writing 'human-interest stories' because these are the stories today's readers enjoy and relate to. Somewhere in a story, they will find something that reminds them of happenings in their lives." This book consists of short "human-interest stories" that will appeal to all readers. The stories are about animals, both wild and tame, along with stories about fish and birds. Children will love the easy-to-read stories and the accompanying pictures. Parents will enjoy the stories too, because both young and old can relate to many of them. Some of the stories will make you laugh; others will make you cry; others are exciting and will keep you on the edge of your seat until you come to the ending. You will want to keep this book in your library to read over and over again.
