Acclaimed author-naturalist Jean Craighead George shares her true adventures living with a variety of wild animals -- including a mischievous crow, a duck with an arrest record, and a Houdinilike boa constrictor. These entertaining and heartwarming animal stories speak to the animal lover in all of us. "Equally entertaining for adults and children, these brief, amusing vignettes make wonderful read-alouds to share with the whole family". -- School Library Journal.
