It's probably not how it's done, but I have decided to dump these three into one review, and just tell you all that this was PERFECT holiday reading material.
I loved the setting, the voices, the love and the angst. And by god I loved the friendship, and the standing up for your friends-attitude.
Special bonus points for the titles:
The Winter Courtship Rituals of Fur-Bearing Critters
Knitter in His Natural Habitat
How to Raise an Honest Rabbit
—but not only are these titles funny, after I've read the books, I also feel the author nailed the deeper meaning in each of them. Kudos.
And then, the knitting. Heh. Inspiring.
