about

This is the story of how, one by one, a man found himself a family. Almost nowhere in fiction is there a stranger, dearer, or funnier family -- and the life that the members of The Animal Family live together, there in the wilderness beside the sea, is as extraordinary and as enchanting as the family itself.

Editorial Reviews

"Like many of the great books of fantasy, The Animal Family is written by a poet. In singing words, he captures the essence of family." (H.)
