Just When Stories, Ed. Tamara Gray (Beautiful Books) FICTION

A lovely book of new stories inspired by Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. Contributors include Sean Tan, Hanif Kureishi, Kate Thompson, Michael Morpurgo, William Boyd, Lauren St John, and others. ALL PROCEEDS are going to WildAid and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation's campaign to fight the illegal wildlife trade. "Enter the minds of a giant tortoise and an elephant, fly with cranes and learn about courage, self-belief and patience in the footsteps of a loris. Explore a whole new world."  And Tamara Grey has partly dedicated the book to her patient whippet Jake - what could be better!!
