Album Notes
In Fables of Fabulous Animals we meet a marvellous menagerie of talking animals. There is the pampered pot-bellied pig who discovers the joy of mud; the chicken who thinks she can fly; the tortoise who travels to the Very End, and many more.

These are very special stories for children that will keep them entertained and going back for another listen night after night. The language is simple but not childish, with some wonderfully wise animal insights.

“It's not easy to find books that kids and adults can enjoy. In this respect, Stapley's book ranks with "The Phantom Tollbooth" and "Winnie the Pooh. These loquacious animals don't make small talk! They get right to the point of existential questions of morality in a way that will make kids giggle and adults smile. Buy this book if you have, or ever were a kid.”
- Dr. Richard Niles
