You will never look at a vulture the same way after you read this hilarious collection of stories about animals as you've never seen them before.

You will never look at a vulture the same way after you read this hilarious collection of stories about animals as you've never seen them before.

A vulture who doesn't like leftovers, a chameleon who saves her fickle, fashionable friends from a volcano, a skunk who wants a quiet, unstressful job (for reasons that will become obvious), a heroic boa constrictor, and a rhino who wants to dance…

Quirky, funny, and full of rhyming, alliteration and word play that will captivate beginner readers, Beastly Tales is a collection of stories that will delight parents and young children.
