A beautiful collection from much-loved poet Pam Ayres, compiling her best verse dedicated to animals, illustrated by Ellie Snowdon. Now a Sunday Times bestseller.

‘Oh WHY must you bark at the postman?
Why must you batter my ears?
I know it seems rum
But the postman has come
Every morning for SEVENTEEN YEARS.’

From her very first encounter with a friendly golden Labrador at just three years old, Pam Ayres has been enchanted by animals. Now, for the first time, in this beautiful new illustrated work, she has gathered together her life’s work of poems, new and old, dedicated to her love of them.

This definitive collection brings to life the charming characters and voices of all creatures great and small through Pam’s poetry over the last five decades. From delightful tales of our British wildlife in ‘I’m a Starling Me Darling’ and the difficulties of keeping farm animals in ‘Fleeced’, to her hilarious observations of our pets in ‘Ode to a Jack Russell’ and poignant reflections on the end of their lives in ‘Tippy Tappy Feet’, Pam Ayres on Animals is a celebration of animals everywhere.
