Featuring David Sedaris''s unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.

In "The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck," three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In "Hello Kitty," a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In "The Squirrel and the Chipmunk," a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.

With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestsellingOliviaseries of children''s books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.
David Sedaris is a regular contributor toThe New Yorkerand Public Radio International''sThis American Life.He is the author of the booksWhen You Are Engulfed in Flames, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked,andBarrel Fever.
