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 Sterling, the silly moose, who loved cows. It was the time of disco and flower crowns. The heartbeat of the era reached Sterling, the 1,000 pound moose in his woodsy marsh. His marsh stood by a dairy farm, which was lucky, as Sterling was obsessed with cows. He broke the farmer's fence, ran with them in the paddock, and made new friends – he didn't want to leave! But the farmer wasn't so happy with Sterling... Would he find his way back to his beloved cows?

This heartwarming story has a fact section at the back, so you can learn more about moose and how you can help them. Stunning nature scenes from Laivi Poder will make you want to dive into 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 Talala, the leopard cub who found her own family. 

The author

Vita Murrow is an educator, an artist, a writer, and a mom. Vita has a quirky sense of humor and an eye for the weird. When she was in 8th grade she was rejected from a special writers’ retreat for kids. But that didn’t stop her from pursuing her passion. 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.
