really liked it
Read in September, 2011

Delightful memoir of the author's childhood spent on the Greek island of Corfu, along with his eccentric, indulgent family and his menagerie of animals wild and tame. A budding naturalist, he roams the island with his dogs, exploring the local fauna in an idyllic time of freedom and natural wonder. It made me a bit sad for all that today's children have lost.
