Praise for the Animal Adventure Club series:

'Perfect for children embarking on their first independent reading journey. The story is exciting, and it's great to have an outdoor setting and caring characters who feel familiar.
Crucially, Hannah George's pictures are lovely and plentiful, and the language and pace of the story are comfortably manageable for newer readers.'
-- Roaring Reads

'While this book certainly will appeal to animal lovers, it also does a nice job of injecting expected norms for working successfully in a group and the importance of accepting others and being empathetic.'
-- Youth Services Book Review

'A lovely tale of friendship, kindness and the importance of empathy with a very relevant message about taking care of our wildlife and environment at its heart... A heart-warming novel that will appeal to younger readers who love animals!'
-- Unicorns and Kelpies Blog

'Full of fascinating information about wildlife and looking after the environment, wrapped up in a great story full of excitement, adventure, friendships, and biscuits, this is a brilliant, fun read for youngsters with an interest in the great outdoors and Scotland's wildlife.'
-- John K. Fulton
