Publisher's Summary

The cast of characters in this compilation is a menagerie of animals: cats, dogs, birds, even a dragon - and their owners. 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!

Critic Reviews

Audie Award Finalist, Audiobook Adapted from Another Medium, 2008

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

"This audio collection takes in a range of creatures and wry twists that form a timely antidote to the current trend of putting pets on pedestals....This is a clever collection that will be great fun for animal lovers." (Publishers Weekly)

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.

A few of them charmed me.

Both the stories and the narrators also vary greatly in style and quality!

This makes it hard to evaluate as a whole. I liked some, disliked some, and was neutral about others!
