Herbert: Five Stories 1988 Walker Books 0-7445-4778-4 ill. Patrick Benson
Contents
Herbert the Chicken
Herbert the Elephant
Herbert the Kangaroo
Herbert the Questionmark
Herbert the Herbert
These five stories concern a boy named Herbert who wakes up in the morning to find that he has become an animal. All stories were published in 1984 as separate books, with the expection of Herbert the Kangaroo, which I believe was written in 1988 for this collection. The 1984 stories were illustrated by Alfreda Benge, and published by Walker Books.

Grape Zoo 1991 Walkers Books 0-7445-2327-3 ill. Jill Barton
This is the story of a young girl Belle Grape who builds zoos. I love the part where Belle discovers that she can squash air into bricks to form the walls of the zoos she creates.

Doris the Hen 1992 Heinmann 0-434-93354-6 ill. Claudio Muñoz
A moral tale about Oliver Parrot's attempts to profit from the singing voice of Doris the Hen. This story doesn't have the same surreal nature as some of Ivor Cutler's childrens stories, but perhaps it can teach a lesson on greed.

The New Dress 1995 The Bodley Head 0-370-31873-0 ill. Claudio Muñoz
This is a lovely story of a girl named Jelly, who wants to make a dress, and uses the ingredients of her mother's scotch broth to decorate it. The story conveys a good mother/daughter relationship, which brings the characters to life.
