This is a unique and wonderful book, beautifully produced, too. It's modelled on the bestiaries of old, and each of the twenty essays in the book considers a particular creature, and ponders our relationship with it: the spider, the swan, the pet dog, the mouse... Margaret Thompson is eloquent, thoughtful and passionate. Her creatures come alive on the page, and so does she. I highly recommend this book. Buy two, and give one as a gift.
