Michael Morpurgo Animal Pair

Go deep into the wilds and feel your heart race with two stories of proud, majestic wild creatures in long-ago times – and in the present day! On the run from the English Redcoats in eighteenth-century Scotland, Robbie McLeod rescues an orphaned wolf cub. It is the beginning of an adventure that sweeps boy and beast from the Scottish Highlands to the New World and beyond… And when Tom says he’s seen a lion strolling through the orchard with a string of sausages dangling from its mouth, no-one believes him – except Clare, the cleverest girl in Tom’s class! Two stirring short novels where the human and animal worlds collide, from one of our very greatest storytellers for children.
