Animals in Fiction

We are big animals lovers in Pennant Hills (generally speaking, we put Marnie in the corner when we discuss our fur babies). With the amount of dogs that visit our shop and so many conversations I’ve had with our lovely regulars about their fur babies I knew I needed to do a list of some of my favourite animal books. Some are beautiful, some interesting, some scary and some, well there are animals but maybe it’s a bit more complicated than that (i.e. Life of Pi by Martel or Animal Farm by Orwell).
