Editorial Reviews

Review

“A most enjoyable idyll.” —The New Yorker
 
“A lot of frolic, fun, and charming ribaldry, as well as the warm feeling of having been transported to a lovely spot where worry is unknown and anything is believable.” —The New York Times
 
Praise for Gerald Durrell
“Animals come close to being Durrell’s best friends. . . . He writes about them with style, verve, and humor.” —Time on The Whispering Land
