The Cat Orchestra and the Elephant Butler by Jan Bondeson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Presents tales from across the folklore of the animal kingdom: a learned pig more admired than Sir Isaac Newton by the English public, an elephant that Lord Byron wanted to employ as his butler, and a dancing horse whose skills in mathematics were praised by William Shakespeare. This book tells ten stories of beliefs and Ripley-like facts.
