This is a book of not really fables that sort of describe the not really easy to catagorize worst tendencies of human behaviour. And the book uses animals instead of people. Honestly some of the stories, I just didn't get at all. Some I could see myself in (no I am not saying which) and other people that I know. But these are qualities I try to overlook and forgive in those that surround me. Mostly this is a nasty, mean, and foul commentary that sometimes gets it right. The best thing about the book was the illustrations by Ian Falconer, illustrator of the children's OLIVIA series. I really wouldn't recommend this book and don't know what I am going to do with the copy I have.
