Long ago when the world was brand new all the creatures were pretty much alike. But with practice, and in all kinds of ways, they became altogether different...
Why are foxes sneaky?
How did the polar bear get her glamourous white coat?
Why does the bee collect nectar?
Why did the hare fall in love with the moon?
In this wonderfully original collection of tales, Ted Hughes explores all these questions and more, and, of course, How the Whale Became so huge.
