John first wrote the stories about his granddaughter Mary after observing her interaction with their pet cat Flora and thought it would be nice to read them to her when she visited their Lakeland home. The books are beautifully illustrated and will appeal to pre-schoolers who will enjoy shouting out the sounds made by Mary’s Animal friends!

Mary’s Animal Friends

Mary loves to visit her Granny and Pa who live in an old house in the Lake District with their little tortoiseshell cat called Flora (because the fur on the side of her head is in the shape of a flower). Here, in the first in a series of stories, Mary wonders whether any of her animal friends will say hello to her – but only one of them agrees and becomes Mary’s ‘favourite animal in all the world’.
