really liked it

Strange yet amusing book - in other words, classic David Sedaris. Illustrations can be a little disturbing and are done by the same illustrator of the children's "Olivia" books. The cover and title are attractive to little kids but keep it far, far away from them unless you want them traumatized. (My 9 year old kept begging me to read it to him. He couldn't understand why I wouldn't.)

The deceptively simple stories feature animal characters but reveal more about human nature than one would expect. Funny on the surface, but something to analyze on a deeper level if the reader cares to.
