This is a little departure from my normal book recommendation. It might be because I’m getting to the age where my perspective on life is changing. I’m also doing some good old fashion reminiscing of the days past. The books in this series were my favorite way back when, and definitely read them more than once. I made sure they remained in my arsenal even though they are miles away. I recommend these books to anyone with children. The main characters are animals, realistic and imaginary, but all have universal themes weaved into the stories. The stories end where you can take away a moral code. The author, Stephen Cosgrove, created this series because he could not find inexpensive books to read for his daughter when she was young. I encourage anyone to read them because I believe they are something that special.
