Animal Farm ❤️
One of the best books I read in high school
Life of Pi
I just finished The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly….animals are certainly a large part of the book but are not the main characters. It’s an interesting story for sure!
Call of the Wild
A Dog’s Purpose
A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, A Dog’s Way Home, The Dogs of Christmas by Bruce Cameron. The Art of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. I’m currently reading Hounded by David Rosenfelt. Deck The Hounds by the same authors in my TBR pile.
Just finished the Netflix miniseries. It deserves an Oscar!
Story of Edgar Sawtelle, My Friend Flicka, Beautiful Joe, Black Stallion, the Warriors series, Bambi
Loved The Art of Racing In The Rain!
The Wolfs Hour by Robert R. McCaon. I’m not usually into werewolf books but the story is fantastic. I couldn’t put it down,the twists and plots kept me intrigued
Watchers by Dean Koontz
All Creatures Great and Small
The call of the Wild, and White Fang by Jack London.
The Cat Who Came for Christmas by Cleveland Amory
Sounder William H Armstrong
Fell (can’t remember the author, but it’s about a Wolfie)
This is Rose, The Art of Racing in the Rain, by Garth Stein…great book.
Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. Amazing sports-writing! I’m not a “horse person” and I loved the book.
Don’t forget the classic Moby-Dick by Herman Melville. ?
Sounder, Black Beauty, where the red fren grows, are just a couple I read as a child.
Dewey the Library Cat
Water for Elephants, Ape House both by Sara Gruen
I think it’s called The Zoo, but not sure. The one by James Patterson that they turned into a TV series.
That’s a good series.
@Paula-Rob I like it too. ?
I Loved The Zoo
I heard there’s a 2nd book…
Highly, highly recommend!!
Never cry wolf and The dog who wouldn’t be, both by Farley Mowat; Watership Down; Old Yeller; Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley.
I just got a copy of Velveteen Rabbit for our granddaughter and myself for Christmas. Never read it before then.
Horse Whisper was good
Not sure if We Bought a Zoo is in book form
Animal Farm- George Orwell
The Elephant Keeper’s daughter is really good!
Tarka the Otter a classic. Or if you’re into fantasy I highly recommend the Duncton Wood series by William Horwood.
A street cat called Bob is a brilliant book. It’s about a man being adopted by a Tom cat when he’s a recovering addict. Very lovely and sweet
That’s what I was going to say. My brother got me the book for Christmas and I fell in love with Bob!
A street cat named Bob is amazing and the three books by Barby keel are also lovely reads
Tailchaser’s Song by Tad Williams
The story of Elsa – Joy Adamson
Beatrice and Virgil

Always loved Ferdinand. I was a preschool teacher so got to re read it quite often.
Duncton wood it’s about moles ?
All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot; The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz; Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
The Art of Racing in the Rain!!?❤️
I can’t remember the name, but there was a really thick book about mice that my teacher made me read for a book report in grade 7. I actually really liked it. I can’t remember exact details, but it was a mice kingdom and there was a tapestry that was particularly important for some reason. It was a black soft cover, thick with fine print. Anyone have any idea what it is?
@Alicia might have been Redwall by Brian Jacques.
@Anna Omg!!! I think it is!! I’ve been wondering that for years. I never realized it was such a huge series. I thought it was just the one book. ?
Ka: Dar in the Oak by the Ley (this book is mostly told in the 1st person p.o.v by a crow)
Dog About Town by J.F. Englert
Marley and Me
Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World.
