To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I thought I had read every Gary Paulson book but found this one I missed a few years ago. These animal,stories are amazing, and show,the true spirit of animals and that they deserve our care and respect.
Love Gary Paulsen's adult books. He tells a great story, can be hilariously funny and doesn't whitewash the realities of wild animals or living in nature. Each chapter tells its own story, but the book comes full circle. Listened to it while traveling which was a great choice. Just wish it was longer. Check out his "Angel Peterson" book or "My Life In Dog Years" - great for adults and Angel Peterson had us in stitches!
Made me laugh. Made me relate to thoughts of my own life. Lover of animals, sharing observations that make you re-look a little differently and smile. Book was too short. I’d like to read for several hundred more pages, to come to know this author more!
I've read aloud several of the stories to my students. Gary Paulsen provides enough background for students to become quickly engaged and the lessons he describes are easily grasped. I think Mr. Paulsen shines with his short stories.
Great book by a favorite, Gary Paulsen. It chronicles his personal 'animal' experiences which made me laugh and sometimes cry. Couldn't put it down. Read it on a 3 hour flight. You won't be disappointed.
