it was amazing

What happens when a sheltered Pommy boy decides to chuck it in and move to South America to work in a somewhat-wacky animal shelter? Plenty of laughs, that's what. If you like travelogues that leave you laughing along with the author at every turn and finishing up feeling like you've made a friend (albeit a slightly insane one!), then definitely take a chance on this delightful ebook by Tony Slater.

Looking after bears, enormous tortoises, toothless cats and other misfit animals that have been saved from unscrupulous traffickers and street vendors, Slater also learns a thing or two about himself, about others (particularly when it comes to the cultural divide) and about life in general. Animal lovers will love this light-hearted, fun read and be inspired by Slater's efforts and his emotional connection to the people, the place and, above all else, the critters (even that eponymous bear!).
