The Little Brown Animal
illustrated by R. Brit Bailey
All alone and a little bit scared, a little brown animal lives in the deep forest. He thinks he is the ugliest creature of all. Wandering alone in the meadows and in secret hidden places, he discovers just how special he really is. He could never have foreseen what happens next! There are four stories that make up the series Tales of the Deep Forest. The Little Brown Animal is the first. The next story is The Golden Griffin, which is due out by 2016.
