Stunning images by world-renowned photographer Rachael Hale McKenna bring to life beautiful stories of the bonds between children and animals.
Every child loves their pet, and this beautiful book portrays the special connections between children and their chosen animals.
Rachael Hale McKenna's stunning photographs catch the joy and delight that exist between children and animals. Taken on location right throughout New Zealand, these gorgeous images show off the amazing New Zealand landscape, whether it be coast, country or city.
There are many cute and funny stories about the children's relationships with their favourite animals. Some are also deeply moving. There are children living on remote farms, in small towns, by the beach, in big cities and yet they all have in common their love for their special pets. And the animals love them right back, some of them providing incredible support to children who are chronically ill or disabled.
As well as kittens and puppies there are all sorts of pets such as horses, rabbits, lambs, calves, goats, pigs, chickens and even eels!
Rachael Hale McKenna is well-known throughout the world for her quirky and delightful images of babies and animals. She has published several books including The French Dog and The French Cat selling millions of copies worldwide. She has now returned to New Zealand with her husband and daughter.
