Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dann
Book DescriptionBoth heart-wrenching and heart-warming, The Animals of Farthing Wood is a classic animal story of adventure and the fight for survival. Farthing Wood is being bulldozed and a drought means the animals no longer have anywhere to live or drink. Fox, Badger, Toad, Tawny Owl, Mole and the other animals band together and leave their ancestral home and set off to move to a far-away nature reserve. Their journey is full of adventure and fraught with disasters: a fire, a storm, a treacherous river crossing and a hunt. The animals must unite in adversity and in doing so they learn about each other's habits and limitations. This is a story about tolerance, cooperation, survival and friendship from Colin Dann, which inspired the major BBC children's series of the 1990s. The Animals of Farthing Wood is one of the most popular animal stories in children's literature and is still in print nearly 35 years after first publication.

Author Biography - Colin Dann
Colin Dann was born in Richmond, London, in 1943. After leaving school he worked first for a large textile company before his real love - the world of books - brought him a job in publishing. He worked for William Collins, Sons & Co. for thirteen years. During this time, Colin wrote his first book, The Animals of Farthing Wood, which was published in 1979. It was an immediate success, winning awards and it has now been translated into sixteen languages. Six sequels and one prequel followed and enjoyed similar success. In 1992 a major animation series based on the Farthing Wood stories was broadcast by the BBC and it stole the hearts of children throughout Britain and Europe. Colin lives with his wife in a converted Oast house on the Kent/Sussex border.
