Amy Wild - Animal Talker

An eight book series about a girl who can talk to animals. I devised the series as a sit-com for kids, and each book features Amy and her animal friends try to put wrong things right. The series is particulary popular in Japan and the Japanese editions look stunning, although I can't read them.
