Books by Jenny Dale

Last year, I was going through my books and found a book about a kitten by Jenny Dale that I had picked up at a garage sale. Needless to say it was a wonderful hit. My girls love the Jenny Dale books.

Most of these are rather formulaic: child meets pet, pet has troubles, everything is solved and all is happy. But each story has been different enough that it has not been like reading the same book over and over again.

For example, there is Felix the Fluffy Kitten who has a problem with shedding or Lucy the Lonely Kitten who misses her sister who was not adopted by this family.

These books are also written by a British author and give some insight into everyday life of children and pets over there. Jenny Dale has books about puppies, ponies, kitties and pet pals. The pet pal books feature two pets that might otherwise not get along but being in the same home soon become fast friends.

These books are hard to find here in the states and can be expensive but when you do find a deal on them they are a great buy.
