Back of book says: Did you know that in 2002 a public funeral was held for 1000 cockroaches in Thailand? Or that cats can be trained to eat with chopsticks? From a two-faced kitten to a squirrel that can water-ski, Weird Pets Stories is a catalog of crazy tales about the world's most peculiar pets!
I say: From the front cover with a lizard propelling a little rickshaw through the illegality of walking pet snakes on leashes to a water skiing squirrel and beyond there's lots of fun in this book . Good b&w, and colored photos and drawings amply illustrate it. Interesting questions at the end of each chapter and bonus questions at the end of the book help with comprehension.
