In this captivating collection of Victorian anecdotes, you'll encounter true tales of railway dogs and seafaring sheep, wise elephants and sagacious rats, cats both caring and conniving, and other tales of just about any sort of critter that walks, hops, crawls or flies! Meet Anchor the stag beetle, Pepper the "catting" dog, Mungo the curious mongoose, and Asnapper the brown owl. Meet dogs that can calculate time and prices, cats that plot revenge, mischievous birds, messenger pugs, rats whose nimble paws rival the Artful Dodger, and at least one fortunate mouse. You'll find the story of the sociable pig, the "fairy" in the soap dish, the jealous robin, the tree-kittens, and so many more. Meet pampered pets, hard-working animals, and wild things that don't always stay in the wild! Includes delightful essays by naturalist Eliza Brightwen, who shared her home with animals of every description. Packed with gorgeous illustrations, this book is a treasure you'll want to share with your entire family, and return to again and again!

About the Author:

Author, book-lover, cat-lover, world traveler, and collector of Victorian magazines and ephemera, Moira Allen knows how to spin a phrase to make her life sound a lot more exciting than it is! While all of the above are true, she actually spends most of her day hunched over a computer keyboard - or a scanner. Allen has loved old magazines since childhood, when she discovered her family's stash of vintage Life Magazines and Saturday Evening Posts in a closet. She was probably the only kid in high school to actually have a collection of Victorian fonts and page decorations - a special treat from when her commercial artist dad would let her tag along on a visit to the art supply store. In England, Allen made the thrilling discovery that one could acquire magazines that were much, much older than that vintage box of Lifes - and the rest, as they say, is history. Literally. Allen now curates a collection of thousands of articles from Victorian periodicals on her VictorianVoices.net website, and produces the monthly Victoriana magazine "Victorian Times." She is a professional writer, with several published books (yep, right here on Amazon). She has lived in England and Germany, and says even her cat has frequent flyer miles (or should). She currently lives in Maryland with her husband and that same well-traveled cat.
