Stories for Animals

Read an excerpt from



If you are reading this, you are an animal.

There are literally millions of books written about animals, but only two books written specifically for animals – and this is one of them.* Originally these stories were published on the wind as an olfactory collection for dogs, but when they soared to #1 on the bestseller lists, other creatures demanded versions for themselves. Thus they were published with vegetable based inks for the edification of rabbits and slugs; converted into a vigorous waggle dance for honeybees; transcribed into whale songs, bird calls, cricket chirps, and elephant trumpets; and, lastly, translated into cow pies for the satisfaction of dung beetles and houseflies. All of these animals enjoyed reading about phobic cats, skeptical basset hounds, heroic honeybees, tree-hugging slugs, and megalomaniacal mollusks – but now, at long last, Stories for Animals is available to animals of all species – including yours.

Recommended for ages 11+ (77+ in dog years)

* The other is Poetry for Animals, available at fine bookstores and from woodland creatures everywhere.
