The Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories - what our bloggers thought

We gave 10 lucky bloggers the chance to review the Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories - the follow-up to our hugely popular Bedtime Stories, jam-packed with tales written by very talented mumsnetters and gransnetters.


Everyone loves Old MacDonald, but sometimes telling it for the tenth time in an evening can wear a trifle thin. That's why, back in January, we asked our users to help us put together a brand new collection of animal stories, to help make bedtime that *little* bit more exciting. 

The response was astounding, with over 600 fantastic entries. It was a tough job whittling them down, but with the help of an expert panel chaired by former Children's Laureate Anthony Brown, eventually 10 authors were selected for the anthology. 

Each story is accompanied by beautiful illustrations by up-and-coming artists, making it a book that is sure to be treasured for years to come. 

Aimed at children aged seven and under, it's perfect for reading aloud at bedtime and can be enjoyed again and again. 

The Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories is on sale now - do read our bloggers' reviews on the linky below, and if you've got a copy we'd love to know your thoughts, too.
