BAD-TEMPERED RUNAWAY CAMEL.  Funny, fast, and satisfying--a hilarious yarn from the "master of animal stories."* Tired of his lonely life at the zoo, Hezekiah--an ornery, very hairy Bacrian camel--busts out and heads across country.  His adventure leads him to an eccentric (and equally hairy) aristocrat, a new life at a wildlife park, and company in the form of a female camel.  Laughs, action, short chapters, and a genuine appreciation of the animal world make this a satisfying choice for newly independent readers.  Nick Bruel's antic black-and-white drawing add to the fun. *The Guardian (London)
