"Ask Dr K Fisher about..." is a hilarious and unique way of learning about favourite topics. This innovative series uses a problem-page format to explain facts. 'Problems' are mailed to agony uncle Dr K Fisher, who then responds to them with sympathy and a wealth of knowledge. "Ask Dr K Fisher about Animals" answers the problems that plague wild animals. The agony uncle patiently responds to each animal's letter - about themselves, their peers and family life. Dr K Fisher's replies provide a wealth of information about food chains, life cycles, animal defences and other important aspects of animals' lives.
