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.

Randall Jarrell (1914-1965) received the National Book Award for his book of poems The Woman at the Washington Zoo.His children's book The Animal Family was named a Newbery Honor Book, and his translation of The Three Sisters was produced by The Actors Studio Theatre.

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.)
