Andrew Lang's famous colored Fairy Books were in fact only part, rather less than half, of a larger series of storybooks for children. Among the lesser-known books of the series are two books of true stories about animals. This book deals with more exotic beasts than "The Animal Story Book". You'll find stories about rhinos, kangaroos, orangutans, panthers, buffalo, llamas, reindeer, and even dinosaurs. There are also chapters about mythical beasts such as basilisks, griffins and unicorns.

Among the stories in this volume are:

Beowulf, and his fight against a dragon;

The autobiography of a lion-tamer;

Saint Jerome, the translator of the Bible, and his pet lion;

Dogs and horses who were taught to steal by their owners;

The life of Tom, a dancing bear;

Maldonada, an Argentinian girl who was left to die in the jungle, but was saved by a puma.

And many more.
