For all you Michael Morpurgo fans

We have three new titles in our Library this week.

- The Butterfly Lion

"Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus. Bertie swears that one day they will see one another again, but the butterfly lion ensures that their friendship will never be forgotten"

- The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips

"It's 1943, Lily Tregenza lives o a farm in the seaside village of Slapton, and her life is scarcely touched by the war. Until one day when the villagers are all told to move out of their homes - lock, stock and barrel. Soon the whole area is out of bounds as the allied forces prepare to invade France. But Tips, Lily's adored cat, has other ideas - and returns to the forbidden area. Frantic to find her, Lily decides to enter the danger zone to look for Tips herself....."

- Born to Run - The many lives of one incredible dog

"For Best Mate, being rescued is only the start of his adventures. From unwanted burden to favourite companion, and from pet to champion race dog, this remarkable greyhound proves that it's not just cats who have more than one life. Cast aside, kidnapped, or living rough on the streets, Best Mate can always find a way to survive. But will he ever find a real home?
