Animal Fiction

Animal fiction focus on stories that involve animals. If the story is told from the animal’s point of view, then it uses xenofication. Many animal stories include humans to some extent. When they do, there is often a focus on the human-animal relationship. This might be a man’s best friend type story, but it may also be a story with humans in the role of oppressor. Most of our animal fiction can be found in junior and middle grade collections, but there are some in the young adult collection.
