    The Lion Book of Five-Minute Animal Stories

    John Goodwin lends his amusing storytelling style to ten animal stories that express an important moral value consistent with Christain faith. Stories are drawn from a range of countries—China, India, Germany—as well as giving a passing nod to the fables of Aesop.



    Stories included are: The Musicians of Bremen; Party Time; The Nightingale; The Cheeky Monkey; The Lion and the Mouse; Princess Petunia and the Pig; The Hare and the Hedgehog; Fish Girl; The Talking Bear; and Chauntecleer the Cockerel.



    Each story extends over two double-page spreads and contains around 600 words. The accompanying CD has lively sound effects and music to bring the stories to life.
