Creature Features by Tim Rowland
If you suspect that a menagerie like this provides plenty of stories a newspaper columnist can use for benefit, you'd be right, If you suspect that the animals are running the farm, you wouldn't be far wrong, If you suspect that the resulting book is a hilarious telling of daily life, you would be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
Be careful; this book can be hazardous to your health, if the standard for healthy individuals doesn't include someone cackling manically as they quietly read. Readers who enjoy stories of rural life and man's attempt to be lord of his estate will be pleasantly surprised to meet Tim Rowland. The articles are short and easy to pick up for a few minutes between tasks, but different enough from each other that sitting down and gulping the entire book in one sitting is definitely possible. This book is recommended for animal lovers as well as those who love humor.
