So the labrador, the old bull terrier and the dainty Siamese cat set off on a perilous journey through the wilderness. But how will domestic animals fare against river rapids, hunger, icy temperatures and ferocious wild beasts? And if they make it home, will their owners be waiting for them?

Product Description:

Incredible Journey

Review:

"A glowing Sunday afternoon of a novel, The Incredible Journey charts the adventures of three pets mistakenly abandoned" ( Independent)

"A sensitive, beautifully written story celebrating heroism and loyalty" ( Irish Times)

"

As I read The Incredible Journey I felt as if I were traveling along with a Labrador, bull terrier and a Siamese cat through the Canadian wilderness.

When the animals got lost from home, they suffered through hunger, freezing weather, Indians and ferocious animals. After many struggles and separations, the animals found their way home to the loving arms of their owners. I enjoyed the adventure these animals took me on in this incredible story.

" (Jessica, aged 8 Los Angeles Times)

"Glorious...always makes me cry" (Jilly Cooper Observer)
