From the Back Cover:

The author was raised by feral chipmunks in the wilds of northern Connecticut,realized at an early age that small children and furry animals considered himan equal, attended a college that had a bull dog as its mascot, practiced law withcorporate wolves and tigers as clients, and retired to write books about plants,animals and people. He lives in northwestern New Jersey surrounded by hiswife, many dogs, a flock of wild turkeys, deer, coyotes, numerous other furrycreatures, and a large black bear who is unduly fond of his bird feeders. He isnow working on a book about what happens in the near future when congresstries to save our bankrupt country by selling off the national parks.

  • Fills a burning need for a book about talking animals. Finally, a photographer/writer with the skill and wit to discover what creatures really think gives us the answers. Bravo!
  • -Writer's mother.
  • Wicked good pictures; fair to middlin' words.Does well in our outhouse.
  • -Pierre Lafitte, Maine Lobsterman
  • This awful photo book discriminates against frogs!Steal it; don't buy it.
  • -Anonymous amphibian
  • Laughed until tears rolled from my crocodile eyes.
  • -"Jaws" Prendergast
  • Amusing little book that, unfortunately, fails to grasp the dichotomous nature of conceptualizing auditory responses from sub-human species. If a butterfly could talk, I doubt it would speak English. It would speak butterfly, which the author has failed to translate properly or support his derivations. This is a flawed attempt, which, nevertheless, rises to risibility.
  • -Dorothy Plankton, Ph. D.
