Description

Master storyteller Jakob Streit has spent much time in quiet communion with nature. In this wonderful collection of stories, he shares some of the conversations he has 'overheard' between different animals.

Bright rhyming verse brings the unique characteristics of the different animals to life. Some unexpected conversations -- for example, a squirrel and a toad -- throw up delightful and unexpected outcomes.
