My favourite children's book,
This review is from: The Animals of Farthing Wood (Classic Mammoth) (Paperback)
The Animals of Farthing Wood is an absolutely fantastic book. It contains interesting characters, and exciting plot and an underlying envioronmental message.
As the title suggests, this book is about the animals from Farthing Wood who find their woodland threatened by the encroachment of man. Eventually, they decide they cannot stay in thier old homes and head out across the country in search of "White Deer Park", a nature reserve. Along the way they encounter many different dangers and perils both from mankind and other animals.
I first read this book as a child and parts of it actually made me cry. It still remains one of my favourite books now I'm an adult (well, ish!!!)
