In her new book, “Ann & Aussie: The secrets of Aussie Farm 4 Kids, Sydney mum Ann Harris shares the story of turning her wonderful dream into reality – a mobile animal farm that brings joy to children and adults alike.
Readers of all ages will love this warm and down-to-earth book, with its hilarious and sometimes heart-rending behind-the-scenes tales from Ann and her star sidekick, Aussie the Labrador Retriever.
Taking the cheeky miniature pony Shanny, mischievous Labrador pup Matilda, a skateboarding chicken and a couple of miniature goats travelling the suburbs of Sydney has provided an abundance of laughs.
Add a few inquisitive rabbits and a gang of guinea pigs, two kids and a long-suffering husband, and Ann has the perfect mix for a delightfully entertaining tale of the triumphs and tragedies of a mobile animal farm.
The book includes some wonderful moments, from how Thumper the rabbit got his nick-name, Humper, to the surprise baby goat birth mid-show, the time when Ann had a little lamb, and the touching stories about disabled kids who light up when they meet Ann’s four-legged friends.
Always an animal lover, Ann is now lucky enough to run a business around her treasured pets and watch as her own travelling farm puts smiles on the faces of kids, the elderly, the disabled – and everyone who meets them – and her book shares some inspiring stories about a small business with a big heart.
