This book is so much fun! It's so engaging. It's charming. Easy to read, too. Of course, I knew what pigeons, starlings, squirrels, raccoons, possums, spiders, daddy-long-legs, fireflies and such are, but I had no idea that they were so interesting. And there are so many other animals, insects and spiders and things I had always seen but never thought about. I learned so much about them.
It's the first of its kind as far as I know and well worth reading and keeping around to refer to.
I've bought several for gifts (for young and old) and I can't wait for Christmas!
