'We must all find a new home. Now - before it's too late!'

Farthing Wood is being bulldozed, and there's a drought. Fox, Badger, Toad, Tawny Owl, Mole and the other animals must band together and set off to a far-away nature reserve. Their journey is full of adventure and fraught with disasters, and the animals must work together to survive.

The Animals of Farthing Wood is one of the most popular animal stories in children's literature and is still in print nearly 40 years after first publication.

'The Animals of Farthing Wood always made me very happy' - Alison Flood, Guardian

This edition features a brand-new cover by award-winning illustrator, Sam Usher.
