I just started this book and love it so far. It is inspired by old fashioned bestiaries but all the crazy information is actually true!
For example,” Beavers can stay submerged for up to 15 minutes. In 1976 the College of Physicians and Faculty of Divinity in Paris classified beaver as a fish because of its scaly tail. That meant the French settlers of North America could officially eat beaver during lent and on other fast days."
or this... "If the male nine-banded armadillo were human, its penis would be 4 feet long."

Mary It was all I could do to stop myself from making a comment that could be construed as dirty. I owe it to you, as you are a professional.
