The Animal Ark series is a series of long running children’s books which are written by a group of writers under the guidance of author Ben M. Baglio. In order to write some parts of the series, author Baglio used the pen name of Lucy Daniels and all the other books were written under his original name. However, it should be noted that both the names used by author Baglio refer to the collection of the authors who helped him in developing the various books of this series. The series was actually started in the year 1994 and is still running successfully all over the world. Author Baglio has published distinguished versions of the series in the United States and in the United Kingdom, by changing the names of some of the original books. All the books that have been released in the US are written under the name of Ben M. Baglio, and those published in the UK have Lucy Daniels printed on them as the writer. In order to appreciate the works of all the authors who assisted author Baglio in coming up with the series, he has purposely added a ‘Special Thanks’ section on each and every book’s copyright page. Author Baglio has stated the books are aimed at all the readers with the age of eight and over. Author Baglio has developed the general plot of each of the books in this interesting featuring the main lead as Mandy Hope. She has been described by the author as the daughter of a local veterinarian, who spends her time in finding the animals that need care and helps them to recover from their problems.

Mandy Hope is often assisted by her best friend named James. A few other people from her village also try to help her out whenever she requires them. Author Baglio has used the name Animal Ark for referring to the vet surgery. A number of books from the Animal Ark book series have been made into television shows. Also, a magazine of the same name has been published that accompanied the publication of the book series. This magazine is aimed at supporting the animal rescue and education center called Jean Byrd, located near Shamwari in South Africa. The magazine is also aided with the help of the Born Free Foundation. All these editions of the books of the series that were published in the United States are differently numbered from the ones that were released in the United Kingdom. Author Baglio has done so because all the novels of the series were not released in the US. The series’ original editions consist of 94 books in total, which were written between the years 1994 and 2008. Initially, most of the stories depicted in the series revolved around Mandy Hope and the vet practice of her parents called Animal Ark. And they were set in the Welford town of Yorkshire. But, as the series progresses, the stories expand to various other continents across the world. In the original series, numerous books were written as Holiday Specials or Summer Specials. And around late 2003, the series mainly featured holiday specials which were set during Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween. The publishers have divided the entire series in different sections, including spin-offs.

One of the popular books released in this series by author Baglio is titled as ‘Lamb in the Laundry’. This book was released in the year 1997 by Scholastic publication. Sheleigh McNicholas has served as the illustrator for the book. In the opening scene, author Baglio has described the veterinary center of the main character Mandy Hope’s parents. It reads a sign board at its entrance that says that all the animals as well as animal lovers are welcome at the clinic. The Clinic is called as Animal Ark Vet Clinic. Mandy Hope is introduced into the plot of the book as a helping hand to her parents. She assists her parents at the clinic, both of whom are veterinary doctors, in treating the animals. All sorts of animals come to the clinic, including all those with different sizes and shapes. Also, Mandy Hope continues to get involved in helping the animals in need. She cannot resist helping whenever she sees any animal in trouble. She also has her best friend called James by her side to join her in her appreciable works. On one occasion, James and Mandy are shown as working at the Spiller farm when they come across a small lamb. It appears to have been abandoned by the mother. They decide to bring the lamb to Mandy’s parents’ clinic and look after it. They provide medical care to the lamb and help it get into sound health. But, as Mandy begins to get attached to the lamb, it disappears. Immediately, Mandy Hope and James begin to search the lamb everywhere. They keep their fingers crossed and pray that they find it very soon before it becomes too late.

One more interesting novel in the series is titled as ‘Pony on the Porch’. This book was also released by Scholastic publication in the year 1994. Author Baglio has published this book in the both the UK and US editions. In this book too, author Baglio has shown that Mandy keeps herself engaged in helping the animals. She works at the clinic of her parents in treating the animals and also helps in their treatment outside of the clinic. She is so much in caring for the betterment of the animals that she cannot resist herself if she sees any animal in need. As this book’s story begins, Mandy Hope is shown meeting Susan Collins, who appears to be stuck on something. She does not like her behavior or attitude at all. But, the only thing that Mandy finds good about Susan Collins is her little pony Prince. However, seeing her behavior towards the beautiful pony Mandy realizes that her determination to win the jumping show might threaten the life of the pony. Therefore, she tries to convince Susan Collins that what she is thinking to do is not good for the pony. She even tries to make her realize that she could put the pony’s life in danger. But, Susan Collins does not pay any heed to her words. Now, Mandy wonders whether she will be able help the innocent pony before it is too late?
