The programme begins with the release of a set of stamps featuring animal characters from classic children's books. Quentin Blake's illustration of Roald Dahl's Enormous Crocodile, will appear along with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Paddington Bear on 10 January as part of the Animal Tales issue.

An ANimal Tales presentation pack is available from the Royal Mail website:

Animal Tales Presentation Pack "People have been telling animal tales for as long as people have been telling stories. This tradition lives on in the world of children's books where the art of storytelling meets that of the illustrator." Roger McGough, taken from the Animal tales Presentation Pack. Containing all eight Animal Tales stamps, this Presentation Pack has been fully illustrated by Sara Fanelli. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Fanelli has worked as a freelance illustrator. Her portfolio includes work for The New York Times, Penguin Books, BBC Worldwide and a previous stamp illustration for Royal Mail's second Millennium Programme issue, Travellers Tales. The pack was written by acclaimed poet Roger McGough O.B.E. As one of Britain's best loved poets his poems on this pack are as timeless as the stamps themselves.
