Totally contemporary but classic in feel, the new animal series from the million-copy-selling Jenny Oldfield is full of humour and adventure for confident young readers.
Adorable animal antics from bestselling author Jenny Oldfield, about cousins Lily and Lexi and their animal problem-solving agency.
No animal - or animal-shaped problem - is too big or small for Lexi and Lily, known as Muddy Paws, the animal experts.
Lily and Lexi are getting loads of calls for Muddy Paws - from the owners of cats and guinea-pigs and hedgehogs. But most important of all is the plight of Breezy, a six-week-old foal whose mother has died. Breezy is shy, so the girls spend time befriending her. Then, just as they make progress, they learn that Breezy will be sold to a racehorse trainer when she is older. How can the girls convince Breezy's owners to let her stay in Mellingham
Includes gorgeous illustrations by Paul Howard, illustrator of classics such as THE OWL WHO WAS AFRAID OF THE DARK and THE BRAVEST EVER BEAR.
