Description

In this new series, based on real-life animal tales, discover that not all heroes wear capes – some have four legs, a wet nose, and a brave heart. Big or small, fall in love with animal friends who have lived truly wild lives.

Read about Talala, the curious leopard cub, who lived with lions. When Talala found herself the sole survivor of her pack in Gir National Park, she began a quest to find a new family. Talala tried the owl family, but she didn't understand their language. Then the antelope family, who ate blossoms – yuck. And then the alligator hatchlings, who didn't play the same games as Talala at all. Finally, she spied the lion family... Would Talala be the heart of their pride? Would she find her fit?

This heartwarming story has a fact section at the back, so you can learn more about big cats and how you can help them. Adorable illustrations from Alexandra Finkeldey will make you want to hug the page.

Also in the series is Onyx, based on the reintroduction of wolves of Yellowstone Park. Fluffles, the koala who held strong through a bushfire. And Sterling, the moose who showed that love has no borders.

Since then, Vita has been a teacher, a producer, a film maker, a program director, and even a puppeteer. She currently works as a children’s author reinventing old stories for a new generation and crafting wordless pictures books together with her husband Ethan Murrow. Their book The Whale was nominated for a CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal. She is also the author of two volumes of fairytales retold for a new generation: Power to the Princess and High-Five to the Hero. Vita loves working with other artists and writers and is always looking to share a chocolate chip cookie with someone.
