Children have a natural attraction to and affinity for animals. Thus, true to its title, I Like Animals is a wistful expression of the innocent desires of a child who simply yearns to be with (more) animals. And naturally — in kid logic, that is — this means owning a zoo and/or a pet shop, and/or becoming a farmer or a woodsman when he grows up. (Ah, to be a child again with boundless optimism and no notion of practical limits/considerations!)
Fellow little animal lovers will also be delighted with the unusual and wide range of creatures featured here — the illustrations of which have been lovingly touched up by Flying Eye Books in this re-edition, and are a faithful reproduction of the vibrant colours and elegant feel of the 1960 original.
