Top Animal Stories

Sarah Lean, author of A Dog Called Homeless, shared her picks for the best animal tales in The Guardian recently ("Sarah Lean's Top Animal Stories," Feb. 21, 2013). “A story can be funnier or richer with the presence of animals,” the British children’s author writes, “because we can see our own strengths and frailties in them." Here are a few books for younger readers among her selections:

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo

Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
