These stories look at the myriad of experiences, and adventures, that pet ownership can bring. Join a medieval scholar who discovers that not all mythical creatures are extinct, stalk the night with the Cat of Frankenstein, kick that caffeine habit with a class of kindergartners, dance along with a divorcée and her dog, and more!

"This production pairs actors with writers whose work is both accessible and memorable....This is one of Selected Shorts' best offerings." (AudioFile)

    "Great stories but Not for Kids"

    These are great stories, but they are not for young children. There are adult themes in all of them.
