On Pets and Men

Front Cover
Claude Lambert, 2009 - Humor - 98 pages
These micro-stories are like a box of Belgian chocolates. Eat one at a time: each one has a different flavor. Most will make you smile, some will let you wonder. Bugs, flies, lizards, spiders, mice, birds, rabbits, cats, dogs, goats, boars and men are presented through the large lens of compassion.

Just acquired this book and loved it. It's filled with fun stories about the author's private conversations with animals, such a stalking raven, a spider who has taken on a liking for Mozart, and a dog who misses his calling as a linguist... A great read!

The perfect book for pet lovers
The stories in this book are a modern twist on the fables, stories in which animals bring their sense of whimsy, intelligence and wonder to the world around us
. They are full of wit and eccentric observations on the animal kingdom. The pets in this book include dogs, cats, birds, as well as spiders, salamanders, palmetto bugs, nematodes and countless others … A wonderful compendium of short stories for pet lovers.
