and Other Stories

Following on from his popular first reader Patter-Paws the Fox, Brien Masters presents us with twelve further stories for school children. This time, however, his exuberant tales are related more closely to the modern, urban experience of the town-dweller. We are introduced to many new and delightful characters, both animal and human, such as Rory the guide-dog and his master Scotty, Trevor the puzzled postman, Wriggly-Caterpillar, and Fudge-fed Bee.
