Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life. In "The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck," three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In "Hello Kitty," a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In "The Squirrel and the Chipmunk," a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children's books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.

It seems more than a few reviewers found this book to be sick and twisted, and I can see where they're coming from. But I thought it was cute.

3.0 Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary
These animal fables are hilarious but in the way that makes you go 'Ouch!' Nasty, close to the bone - or, in one relatively touching(!!!??) instance - closer to a hippo's asshole than I would personally care to get. These are not, on the whole, nice animals. Some of them are as unpleasant as the unp...

2.0 Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Wicked Bestiary
The story of The Crow and the Lamb was an incredible story, but the remainder of the book was dull at best. The only thing that surpassed my surprise was my disappointment. While it's possible that the other Sedaris works which I thought were wonderful and hilarious caused me to set the bar too high...
