This audio book is hilarious. Several of the animals, reptiles, amphibians and insects portrayed in these stories will remind you of people you know. I hope I am not one of them!
As a plus, the audio book is read by several people, among them, Elaine Stritch. Stritch's voice is perfect and adds to the stories she reads. I guarantee you will laugh at the first story of a baboon hair dresser fixing the hair of her customer the cat. It is a short book and I enjoyed it so much I listened to my favorite stories a second time. This book is guaranteed to make you smile and I recommend it to everyone wanting a good laugh, particularly if you enjoy dark, quirky humor.
The library also has the print version, which features delightful illustrations from Ian Falconer (writer/illustrator of the Olivia picture book series).
