This book is a fascinating insight to the life of an exotic animal vet. He determined at a young age that he was going to be a vet to wild animals, not just dogs, cows, and horses, etc.

If you enjoyed stories from the famous vet James Herriot, you'll surely like the stories David Taylor tells in his book. From operations on elephants and giraffes, to caring for sick gorillas and whales, he fills the book with stories from funny to sad.

The setting is quite similar to James Herriot, as Dr. Taylor is based in Britain, although he travels internationally in some of his adventures. He is also in a later time era the Dr. Herriot.
