About this title

Synopsis:

Enter a world where a pig struggles to become a housing contractor, a monkey opens a barbershop, an orangutan goes into politics, a fox practices alternative medicine, a goose plans her own wedding, a rabbit experiences the supernatural, a bull yearns to be a monk and a cat strives to become computer literate.

In Tales of Beastly Behaviors we encounter a timely and thoroughly amusing collection of satirical wit, social commentary and, occasionally wisdom. They offer us a mirror that reflects how we are when we are uniquely human and stripped of artifice.

These thirty-four fables satirize human behaviors by attributing them to barnyard animals that think and speak like humans. The characterizations may be whimsical, but what the barnyard animals do and say is entirely recognizable in the actions and words of our friends, our families and ourselves. These fables make social commentary easier to accept as they pick at our frailties and force us to laugh at them.
