The first story has a rural setting and fairytale ending; a horse rescues a family struggling through hard times. Another story pivots around a hunting dog who just turns up one day but leaves an impression. A tale about extraordinary fish bait vividly describes the young narrator's situation much to our amusement and surprise. Our favorite story concerns a human couple that can't agree which animal makes the most attractive sound. We laughed at the author's hilarious examination of couple dynamics.
The kids tend to mention these stories quite a bit which tells me that the book remains in the forefront of their thoughts.
The reading level is age appropriate for more accomplished readers.
