I really enjoyed reading the short stories in the book and my kids enjoyed the ones I shared with them. Our personal favorite was one about a wise-cracking parrot who said the funniest things at the most perfect moments, embarrassing and delighting it’s owner.
This book is truly a great, fast little read that is sure to make you smile a time or two. Jo Coudert, the author, has a way with words and tells the stories in ways that are compelling and interesting. She is the author of nine books including Seven Cats and the Art of Living. She is a lifelong animal-lover herself. This book would make a great gift for a person dealing with tough times or illness, for an animal lover, or for a pre-teen.
