Don’t be fooled by the cute illustrations on the cover, this book is not full of cute animal stories, rather dark and sometimes funny tales involving animals viewed almost as humans. These stories explore relationships in very clever ways that really get you thinking! With 18 short stories, some a lot shorter than others this is a very witty and easy read.
