"Some people keep them as pets: as the saying sums up well - 'Better to be loved by a NAKED MOLE-RAT than despised by a gazelle."
An Alphabet of Awful Animals for Adults (to read to their grandchildren) written by George Courtauld and illustrated gruesomely by John Holder is a fantastic bedside book for children fascinated by the wild. It offers an A-Z of poems on a wide variety of creatures (both mythical and existing), a perfect gift! 20% of all proceeds go towards our sight-saving work - changing the lives of children (and adults!) in a very different world from our own.
