What's Your Favourite Animal?

By Eric Carle

Who would have thought? Lucy Cousins' favourite animal is ... a leopard! NOT a mouse! And Eric Carle? He loves CATS! Find out what other award-winning author/illustrators' favourite animals are in this stunning new collection from Eric Carle and friends.

Some artists reveal their choices with a personal story, others with a comic turn, but all will undoubtedly inspire children to draw and tell a story about their own favourite animal!

  • The perfect book for any picture book lover with an unbelievable collection of illustrations from luminaries such as Jon Klassen, Lucy Cousins, Mo Willems and Eric Carle!
