Today is World Animal Day and what better way to celebrate then to remember our favorite bookish animals! Animals are already the cutest things on earth. To hold them, cuddle them, and wake up with them by your side are all what makes life worth living. Naturally the next step for any reader is to read about them too! Here are some of our most beloved animal characters.
Winnie The Pooh By A.A. Milne
Perhaps the wisest of all fictional animals, and the most cuddle-able.
If You Give A Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff
Moral of the story here, never give a mouse a cookie. But we still can’t help but love the little guy, I mean, just look at him! Those EARS!
The Adventures of Tintin by Georges Remi
Even though Snowy didn’t speak at all, Tintin’s wire fox terrier was cute, confident, and always in the right place at the right time.
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
Pretty much the whole cast of Charlotte’s Web is absolutely lovable. From Wilber to Charlotte herself, we love them all!
Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
This mischievous little gorilla is a hero to all animals! After he frees all the animals in the zoo, he snuggles back into bed with his friend the mouse and the zookeeper. Goodnight Gorilla.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Perhaps the happiest and saddest animal book there is. Billy and the Redbone Coonhounds had the ideal human-animal relationship.
Curious George by H.A. Rey
Another precious primate that loves to cause trouble.
