The three characters in The Three Amigos – Tammy, Timmy and Tommy happen to be part of the nature around us. Tammy the owl is a teacher, because as we all know, the owl is claimed to be wise. Timmy the fox is as sly as any fox could be, and believes that he is right, even when he is wrong. Tommy the frog is not all that bright or quick witted, but he is a good sort.When the friends meet, the owl asks them questions to help them learn about the other animals that live nearby. Their answers and his corrections make Timmy and Tommy learn the basics about the animals around them.In this first volume of a new children’s series introducing biology, the characters learn about the swallow (which is a bird), butterflies, fish and squirrels.
