TTT #43 Animals in books



 Top ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Artsy Reader Girl. This weeks topic is Animals in books.

I would not recommend the first four books on the list for young kids. They have mature content that is gear to towards upper middle grade to YA. The rest of the books can get dark at times otherwise there fine. Just because a book has an animal as the main character doesn't mean it for young kids or it can't say anything about the human condition.
