5.0 out of 5 stars Paws and Whiskers~Jacqueline Wilson 4 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Paws and Whiskers was an amazing book! It is filled with stories about cats and dogs from all different authors...
e.g. Michael Morpurgo, Philip Pullman, Malorie Blackman, Francesca Simon, Anne Fine, Patrick Ness, Dick King-Smith, Noel Streatfeild, Lewis Carroll, Enid Blyton and even two stories from Jacqueline Wilson herself! However, each of the stories only have one chapter in this book!

I would reccomend this to 7-12 year olds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animal Stories 20 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very good selection of animal stories by a huge number of authors. They range from a page or two long to quite long. Many different animals are the subjects of the stories. Children who like animals will love it. The age range targeted is about 8 to 13 although older children and adults with an interest in animals will like it too. Jacqueline Wilson's name appears prominently on the cover and it would be possible to think the book was by her; she is, in fact, the editor but there is a story by her in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 9 Jan. 2015
By Pete
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My eldest daughter is an avid reader and absolutely loves this book. We bought her a kindle last year and yet she prefers still to read "Real" books as she calls them. I asked her (bearing in mind she has just turned twelve) why she prefers "Real" books and she replied "Books have soul".
My daughter loves these books and if they are good enough for her they are good enough for me :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift 25 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In my opinion this is one of the best things JW has produced. I am not hugely keen on her fiction normally (although my 9 yo is) but the stories in here are lovely and my 9 yo loves to read them aloud to her 4 yo brother - - they both like animal stories - It is fab value at the price and would make a great gift.
